Hi! My name’s Katelyn and I am the new addition to the team!
I’ve lived in Taranaki all my life. I went to St Mary’s Diocesan School, Stratford and from there found my passion for everything business.
After joining the Young Enterprise programme in 2016 (and loved it), I went on to joining the programme a second year as CEO for a little business we created called Nifty&Co, selling personalised reusable bags. We were named the YES Taranaki Regional winners for the best business and competed at the YES nationals in Wellington.
From there, I went to study a Bachelor of Applied Business Management with the Accounting Major at WITT. I am currently in my 3rdyear and so excited to be starting my working career with Balanced Accounting Taranaki!
I’ve previously worked for Strategy Collective, Stratford Vehicle Testing Station, the Devon Hotel and New World Inglewood in various roles..
Having a balanced lifestyle is something that, over the years, I have come to realise is really important, so when I’m not busy at my desk or got my head stuck in some study books, I’m out enjoying what I makes me happy.
My hobbies include going to the gym, playing netball/umpiring and spending time with my family, partner and friends.
I look forward to meeting you all in the near future!
