In that time technology has had remarkable changes and Leah has seen many developments and ensured smooth transitions along the way to the server structures of today and now the exciting opportunities available with the Internet and Cloud applications.
She has a Bachelor of Accounting and Information Systems and love of computerisation including deciphering technological problems and applying new gadgetry to solve problems. As such Leah has worked with clients and helped them successfully upgrade their accounting systems, customised statements, computerised their payroll and electronic payments of debtor/creditors. She has also worked with clients to utilise Cloud Accounting, whether it be completely or a combination depending on their needs.
Originally from Canberra, she holds a soft spot for the Nation’s capital, but relocated to the Northern Rivers to be closer to her grandparents who had all fallen in love with the local area.
She is talkative and friendly but also loves to be lost in reading, a trait she shares with her parents, or a movie when she is not catching up with friends, colleagues and family.
