Principal Accountant & Bookkeeper

Outstanding Business Person of the Year Finalist 2023 & 2022 Liverpool Local Business Awards

SDS Accounting & Bookkeeping Solutions Pty Ltd was born in April 2020 in the thick of the Covid-19 Pandemic as I returned to the workforce from second time Maternity Leave. I had started in the Accounting Profession about 10 years ago and had gained several years of all round Accounting experience in a wide range of roles and industries, including FMCG, Local Government, Manufacturing, Property and Construction. 


I had the goal of eventually moving into Public Practice where I could establish my own business and combine my passion for Accounting with my strong background in Customer Service. 


I felt that this was the right time!
