I am a current member of the Institute of
Chartered Accountants being a fully qualified
Chartered Accountant with a certificate of
public practice. My degree is a Bachelor of
Commerce from Auckland University majoring in
Accounting & Finance. I also have a Diploma in
Business Studies endorsed in Financial Planning.
I was a member of the FPIA (Financial Planners
and Investment Advisers Association) with a
Certified Financial Planner qualification.
The first ten years of my career following
university study were spent in the corporate
accounting scene in Auckland working for
companies such as Wilson & Horton and Elders
Rural Finance. I then moved to Northland in 1994
to establish a Financial Services firm. In 2003
I established my own Chartered Accountancy Firm,
Alpine Accountancy & Investments Limited. This
firm is based in Wanaka at 38 Studholme Road.
I moved to Wanaka permanently in 2005.
