Barb spent her early years at Mundulla where her family were farmers and attended Mundulla Primary School and Bordertown High School before moving to Adelaide in 1975 where she attended Muirden College - Secretarial Branch for a year. She did secretarial work for 10 years with an Adelaide accounting firm before switching to accounting and income tax work in 1985. While working full-time and studying part-time Barb completed a Bachelor of Accounting at the University of South Australia in 1997 and has since qualified as a Certified Practising Accountant (CPA).
After 24 years in Adelaide Barb wanted to move back to the South-East as her family was here, and was delighted to move to Naracoorte to work with Murray Nankivell at the end of 1998.
She works with a range of farming and other business clients providing assistance with taxation and GST matters, and shares responsibility for maintaining the high quality of work produced by the Naracoorte office. Barb also plays a pivotal role in assisting the training and development of our own staff.
Barb is involved with the Naracoorte Soroptimists, Naracoorte Singers, Mundulla Uniting Church and Naracoorte and Lucindale Anglican Churches and leads the St Paul's Singers. She loves reading, music, movies and Quiz Nights. Barb is a keen sport spectator interested in AFL football, Test and One Day International Cricket and international tennis; but especially enjoys watching the Mundulla boys of all ages play football.
