Hi I'm Haley

I’m based in the Mangawhai, Northland. I moved here with my family from Waiheke Island. I live with my amazing partner, our daughter and son. I’m a country girl at heart and an animal lover. We have a dog, cats and chickens. Between my children and my pets, what spare time I have left is spent exploring our wonderful home.

I’m currently studying at Massey University, completing a Bachelor of Accountancy degree. Prior to running my own business I worked for Kiwibank for 8 years, and then in various accounts roles working with a multitude of software's and systems.

I took the leap and started my business in 2014, after a few of my friends/clients asked me to help them with their businesses.

I pride myself on being organised, efficient, motivated, trustworthy and loyal.

Hi I'm Zoe

Mangawhai is where I grew up, so after studying in Wellington (too windy), and working in Auckland (too Auckland), I was ecstatic when I got the opportunity to move home. 

With accountants as parents, taxation and accounting quickly became second nature. After graduating from Victoria University I worked as an auditor for KPMG. This progressed into a tax accounting role at a boutique accounting firm, specialising in property, trusts, and small business. 

When I am not glued to my laptop you will likely find me at the beach enjoying the sunshine and surf. My two fluffy golden retrievers are my shadows, along with our goats and sheep; my partner & I are making the most of country living. 

My passion is to understand your business and numbers to enable you to focus on what you do best.

Hi I'm Maris

Originally from North Carolina, USA, I came to New Zealand while on secondment while working for a large Audit, Tax, and Consulting practice.  I worked in the audit field for a decade until my husband and I decided to leave the city and move to Northland where I started to focus my career on business advisory services.

I have an undergraduate degree in Business from Appalachian State University and a Master of Accounting from North Carolina State University.

When not at work, you can find me out surfing with a smile on my face. I love dragging my husband all around NZ in search of waves, some of my favourite places to adventure to are Ahipara and Raglan.

I look forward to working with our clients to better understand their businesses and providing coaching, planning, forecasting/budgeting, succession planning and so many more amazing services to help our clients take their businesses to the next level.

Hi I'm Natalie

After leaving England in 2004, my husband and I moved to Auckland, where I worked as a senior manager in the Insurance industry. I left corporate finance a few years ago and ran my own small business in Mangawhai, before coming back into an accounting role with My Two Cents. With my English background, my accounting qualification is from the Chartered Institute of Management Accounts, UK.

Outside of work, I love the outdoors, walking the dog at the beach and being a Mum to our 2 kids. When I'm not running around after the family, I'm either baking or in the garden.

Mangawhai bookkeeper my two cents

Hi I'm Mackyla

I live a small commute from Mangawhai with my partner and our children. I come from a farming background and have spent a lot of time on dairy farms; I'm also a qualified hair stylist. On my days off I'm kept very busy having adventures in and around Mangawhai with my son.

I completed the Certificate in Bookkeeping last year with the Career Academy, and became a Certified Bookkeeper with ICNZB. I started work with My Two Cents in September 2018. Since then I have become Xero Certified Advisor and Xero Payroll Certified.

I love working with our varied clients, there is never a dull day in the office.

Mangawhai bookkeeper my two cents

Hi I'm Charlotte

Together with my husband and son, I live in Mangawhai and love having the best of rural life and the beach life at our fingertips.

Previously a travel agent for many adventurous travel-filled years, Covid brought a halt to that and saw me looking for a role that incorporated the work I enjoy most.

For me this is assisting people through administration & organisation and continuing my obsession of creating and ticking off a to do list! I like to be busy and love that I learn new things everyday. 

I am so fortunate to be part of the My Two Cents team and work alongside this amazing group of bookkeepers and accountants.

Elizabeth Farley Mangawhai bookkeeper my two cents

Hi I'm Elizabeth

I live in Mangawhai with my spoiled rotten Cavoodle, Chester. I have been wanting to move to Mangawhai for a long time, and was overjoyed when I got to move here 18 months ago as an escapee from Auckland.

I have been working as a self-employed bookkeeper for the last 18 years, along with walking dogs to get some variety and exercise. I am Xero Certified and Xero Payroll Certified. I was drawn to bookkeeping because I am good at organising, and enjoy making everything flow smoothly and efficiently. There is a lot of satisfaction in taking something that stresses a lot of small business owners, and making it easy and stress-free.

When I am not working, I enjoy getting out and walking with my dog, especially at the beach and with friends. If a flat white is included, then life is good.
