MEET THE ASPIRE ACCOUNTING TEAM
B EC (MONASH), CHARTERED ACCOUNTANT
Liz started Aspire Accounting Professionals in 2000, after an early career working for State Bank Victoria and National Australia Bank. Her desire to “actually help people” led her to take up positions in two public accounting firms on the Mornington Peninsula before leaping out on her own at the same time the GST was implemented in Australia. She loves seeing new businesses get started and watching established businesses reward their owners beyond turning a profit.
Having grown up on the Mornington Peninsula, Liz has loved raising her family here together with her musician/photographer husband. She loves to read, literally anything, and has been known to lead worship at her local Salvation Army church. Browsing antiques stores, watching great movies or series, dreaming about a return trip to Europe and watching her children spread their wings. Or simply enjoying the wonderful picturesque location she feels privileged to live and work in.

and not everything that counts can be counted”
B.BUS (ACCOUNTING), B.BUS ( BUSINESS MANAGEMENT), CPA GOLDEN KEY HONOUR MEMBER
Lauren went to school at Toorak College , University at Monash Frankston and Clayton and studied her CPA while pregnant with her first gorgeous boy. This was also the fortuitous time she bumped into Liz at the bank and a great working friendship was born!
Lauren fills in her spare time swimming, shopping, aerobics, gym and doing a Cliff Young shuffle with a “wet wellie” (ie the morning jog). Travelling and exploring new places is high on her priorities, with the boys now aged 11 and 7. She looks forward to sharing exciting trips with them to re-visit places loved and been before, and to exploring new destinations.
I look forward in my career to continually evolve my skills in a work environment that is organically changing every day, minute and second. At times these challenges can be scary but with a great work family at Aspire Accounting Professionals to learn with, nothing is un-achievable.
“Embrace today, learn from yesterday and plan for tomorrow”
…and most importantly make time to share a giggle with some goods friends and family, eat something yummy and drink something delicious!!
RECEPTION / OFFICE MANAGER
Sally has extensive bookkeeping and ASIC reporting experience and ensure that our clients records are maintained accurately. Her career has seen her work with several significant Peninsula accounting firms, with a ten year sidestep into financial planning. This perspective helps us keep in mind that as business advisors, we need to consider more than historical figures.
Her passions beyond work are her garden, her grown up family and taking care of her friends. Sally is truly a great example of a ”best friend”.
Sally’s caring nature and positive outlook represent the core of Aspire Accounting Professionals philosophy. We are so proud to have her as our first point of contact at reception, and to keep us on task as office manager.
