Colleen is another senior practitioner with long record of more than 35 years helping clients with their accountancy needs, both in New Zealand and Australia. She has experience in various aspects including business and farm accounting, tax consultancy and auditing, having worked with everyone from large public companies to the small corner dairy.
Colleen set out early in her career to broaden her business knowledge, with a detour to Australia followed by a period with Ernst & Young in Palmerston North, where she developed her tax consulting skills. She enjoys working with start-up businesses, where she can apply her experience every day to both complicated issues to more simple things like preparation of financial reports, tax returns and GST.
Colleen holds both a helicopter and fixed wing pilot's licence. She loves the maneuverability of helicopter handling, particularly mountain flying, which she combines with her love of photography. She is also the Treasurer of the Wanganui Trotting Club and is learning to speak German before undertaking a trip to German-speaking Switzerland to trace her family's ancestry.
"I enjoy working with a diverse range of client business types. I like the challenge of switching between sectors and means I can often apply solutions learned in one area to another client's business goals."
