DESCRIBE A TYPICAL DAY AT (OR OUT OF) THE OFFICE

As an Associate Business Partner, I can either be inside the office or out. A typical day for me at the moment would be in the office answering customer queries and preparing management and annual reports. I’m also often out of the office heading to my customer’s regular growth meetings or having a chat with prospective customers.

 

WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT YOUR JOB?

The people I get to work with are very positive and encouraging. I enjoy being able to help customers succeed. And the wide variety of things I get to do means it's always exciting.

 

WHAT BROUGHT YOU TO RIGHTWAY?

I knew I wanted to be an accountant. So I went to Canterbury University to chase my accounting and netball dreams. After I got my BCom I started working in public practice, where I learned a lot about the accounting process and how it could help my customers. My roles included Accountant, Auditor and Business Support – all under the public practice umbrella – working on a diverse range of customers while gaining my Chartered Accountancy qualification.

 

After 10 years, I decided to start my own business, which helped me even further to understand what my customers go through daily in running a business. But I then found that RightWay aligned with my values and had a great culture, so I joined the team here. After starting as a Senior Reviewer, I became an Associate Business Partner – a job I absolutely love.

 

DESCRIBE A TIME WHEN YOUR ADVICE AND SUPPORT REALLY MADE A DIFFERENCE FOR A CUSTOMER

I remember being able to go with a customer to a meeting where their Annual Report was going to be reviewed. I knew that the customer felt much more prepared and at ease knowing that we were there to answer any questions and offer support.

WHAT ARE YOU WATCHING/READING/LISTENING TO RIGHT NOW?

Listening: Love Lies by Khalid (with Normani).

Reading: glossy mags (so I can keep up with the fashion trends).

 

IF YOU HAD A GUILT-FREE $1000 (OR 2K OR 5K) TO SPEND, WHAT WOULD YOU DO?

A holiday with family, somewhere with nice weather and good food.

 

WHAT'S THE BEST PIECE OF BUSINESS OR LIFE ADVICE YOU EVER RECEIVED?

What you don’t know, seek help with. There is no failure in asking for assistance, the only failure is in not asking.

 

DESCRIBE YOUR HAPPY PLACE.

With my daughter.
