Mandy Taske

Mandy Taske

Senior Accountant & Client Manager
Mandy says numbers are in her blood, which could explain why accounting and bookkeeping has been her preferred career for the past 28 years.  Mandy is currently studying a Bachelor of Financial Planning/Bachelor of Accounting dual degree.  It’s little wonder the logical nature of it appeals so strongly to such a methodical and organised individual, and there’s nothing Mandy likes better than doing data entry and compiling financial reports.  Nothing, that is, apart from a good workout at the gym and plenty of Bundaberg sunshine.
