Partner

Before joining Margin Gains, I was a Director/Partner at Baker Tilly Staples Rodway, working in their Business Advisory team. In my role, I acted as the trusted advisor to a number of private clients, family trusts and businesses – specialising in SMEs, Trusts and Property. In my early career I had the opportunity to work in Toronto, Canada and at the NZ branch of an NYSE listed FMCG company.

I am a member of CAANZ, where I am a member on their Public Practice Advisory Board. A proud scarfie, I have a Bachelor of Arts in French and a Bachelor of Commerce in Accounting and Economics from the University of Otago. I am also a member of the NZ Institute of Directors.

Practice Manager

I look after the management of the practice and helping clients with broader needs. I started my career in a mid-tier chartered accounting firm before moving into commercial roles, firstly at one of the big four banks as a Commercial Analyst and then as a Finance Analyst for an NZX/ASX listed company.

I am a Chartered Accountant and member of CAANZ. I studied later in life and gained my Bachelor of Accounting extramurally whilst raising my family and living in Shanghai.

At Margin Gains I enjoy being part of a smaller team of likeminded colleagues who are ready to face any challenges a client may have, to help them grow and navigate an ever-changing business environment.
