Nicole Donaldson


Nicole is originally from a dairy farm in the Tararua district. She spent 13 years working as an accountant in a Masterton accounting firm (so knows the area well), and has now been based in Taranaki for the last two years with her husband who is the general manager of a timber re-manufacturing plant, and their children.


Nicole is an associate chartered accountant with over 14 years experience in sheep and beef, dairy, horticulture, and agri-commerce. Nicole works with our larger agri customers from around the country.


Olivia (or Liv, as she likes to be called) is a fully qualified chartered accountant specialising mainly in viticulture and agricultural contractors.


Originally from Wellington, Liv's spent the last 6 years in Martinborough with her husband, a farmer from Namibia, and two young boys. She made the shift from living in the big city and working in the commercial sector, to rural Martinborough and public practice and has never looked back.

Hear from our customers


Louise at RightWay is also from a farming background and that’s a big bonus as we knew she would understand the different operating modules of the lodge and farm.

We’ll work with you to help create budgets that work, including tailored rural management reports.
