Hi I’m Vee.  Before I moved to New Zealand in 2011, I worked in the corporate finance area, doing financial modelling of publicly-listed companies as a financial analyst with HSBC and as part of fund management with AIG. To familiarise myself with the New Zealand work environment, I upskilled and went back to school. I like to do number crunching, working with financial data and spreadsheets.

I joined the Living Business team in 2016 and enjoy the balanced way of life within a supportive team environment. 

I enjoy having new experiences, just like my leap of faith to New Zealand. I am glad we chose sunny Tauranga, it’s the perfect place to be. I enjoy swimming, nature walking and gardening. I used to do scuba diving but my ears couldn’t handle the pressure, so I’m trying kayaking to be my next water sport.

I am now enjoying learning a new aspect of finances from within the businesses I am working  with.
