We felt it was time our clients got to know a little more about Emma.
How would you describe yourself?
Captain Brunhilda- Mighty Warrioress who SLAYS GST returns!!! Or something like that? I am cheeky little red-haired princess. I am a giant nerd.

My sisters-from-other-misters also known as the delightful ladies I am blessed to work with.
What are your ultimate personal goals?

AND most importantly to be happy and for my son to grow up happy and well-adjusted.
Why do you love bookkeeping so much?
I love how there is no grey area with numbers, they either add up or they don’t!! I also really like stamping all the receipts with the ‘Posted’ stamp because it makes me feel important.

Once I had a client try to write off hair replacement therapy.
Describe your ultimate bookkeeping client?
Friendly, challenging and organized. They should also bring me presents. Especially cupcakes or chocolate.
