I am a mother to twin girls that are adults now, and a grandmother to one. Having worked for small, medium and large sized companies as well as multiple entity companies, I started my own business with the support and encouragement from previous employers. I also wanted to make a difference in what I did on a daily basis and this is a reflection of who I am.

With over 25 years experience of solutions and knowledge on offer, this can only be beneficial to you and your company. I have a Diploma in Accounting,  am a Certified Bookkeeper and a member of the New Zealand Bookkeepers Association Incorporated,  as well as a member of the Chamber of Commerce.

I am the seamless link between you and your accountant and when you engage my services, this will allow you more time to work in your business and not on it.

Professional, Personal, Passionate

Colleen moved from Minnesota, USA with her family in 2014 and traveled around New Zealand in a campervan to find the perfect place to live.  When they discovered Motueka, they knew they were home.  Colleen and her husband and 3 young children enjoy exploring all the beautiful places that the upper South Island has to offer.  You can often find her running around the inner estuary loop or tramping with a group of ‘Wild Mums.’

When Colleen was new to Motueka, she and her children met people and found a supportive community in Playcentre.  When Colleen began managing the finances for Playcentre, she found that she really enjoyed the Xero bookkeeping work she was doing and took pride in the order found in working with numbers.  She started working with Leah in 2019, is Xero certified, and is currently studying for her certificate in Bookkeeping.

Professional, Personal, Passionate

Netball is my passion. I am a netball coach and mentor in Nelson, mentoring both coaches and players within this role. I am also a performance coach having trained with Netball New Zealand and Netball Mainland zone. This is hugely important to me and something that gives me pleasure watching others benefit from and grow as players and people.

Being a runner, walker, road biker and enjoying the outdoors, the native surroundings especially, led me to recently completing my first ever half marathon with another motivated business women in Nelson.

I enjoy my gardening and home grown fruit and veges. You will find me in the garden on the weekend as much as time allows especially in the netball off season as well as soaking up the amazing outdoors on offer in the Tasman area. I enjoy floral art, card making and being generally creative.

As a business and individual I also support the Nelson/Tasman branch of Big Brothers Big Sisters, taking time out to spend time as a big sister to a very cool little girl in Tasman.

25 years experience of solutions and knowledge

I pride myself on the service I provide and being able to offer both efficient and flexible solutions that suit you and your business. I have over 25 years’ experience that can offer a range of solutions to any business. Outsourcing or having a Virtual Assistant is like having a staff member without the cost and hassle of employment. Instead, you contract my services, allowing you work in your business, not on it. You are charged only for the work completed.

Business accounts and administration can quickly become complex and time consuming for many if you do it on your own. Some of the most successful business owners are experts at delegating work to the right people, let me handle this for you allowing you to get on with what you do best in your business. Every business has work which needs to be done by someone, and if it is not central to introducing revenue (as administration certainly does not), it is more viable to outsource this. Call me today to find out how I can help you in your business.
