I am proud to be the Director of Walsh Accountants, where I have had the privilege of assisting clients and staff to grow their businesses and mindset for over 30 years.
My passion is growth. Seeing clients grow their business, seeing people grow their skills and mindset to overcome obstacles and solve challenges to achieve their goals – no matter what they are.
I lead a growing team of people who are more than accountants, they are thought leaders in business, taxation alternatives and accounting systems. We are constantly learning and challenging ourselves with new ideas, projects, and any opportunities that enable us to grow our mindset. This focus improves the value and impact we have on our clients and the growth of their businesses and financial outcomes.
