Hi, I’m Catherine and I joined the Living Business team in 2019, after working with a mutual client, as well as through a personal family connection. In 2014 I completed the Certificate in Bookkeeping, and in 2020 completed the test to become a Certified member of the Institute of Certified NZ Bookkeepers, and also became Xero qualified.
I had been maintaining the books for my husband’s business, and decided I wanted to spread my bookkeeping wings further, as it suits my fastidious nature.
I started with maintaining the Living Business Xero file, managing accounts enquiries, reconciling, and some positive credit control. Since then I’ve expanded to working directly with bookkeeping clients as well as providing holiday time backup for the team.
I’m really enjoying learning more as I take on different types of bookkeeping clients, and having the support of the team is just invaluable.
It’s also great to be able to fit work around family commitments while utilising my strengths of attention to detail, working efficiently, and taking care to ensure correctness.
When I’m not working, I also enjoy yoga, outdoor adventures, growing my own produce, healthy cooking and family time.
