Julie West
Director

Certified Practising Accountant. Member of CPA Australia. Registered Tax Agent

Previous Experience:

* DW Currie 1984-1999 (Tax and Accounting)

Julie has a wide and diverse experience in the accounting profession and especially in that of the primary production industry. Marrying into a farming family has provided a greater appreciation and understanding of this industry sector, farming in livestock and broad acre cropping. Her experience in rural Australia has enabled a greater understanding of the needs and wants of micro to small business. Such an understanding allows the provision of a high standard of professional advice and service to clients on a personalised basis.

Although working in and on the Practice is of paramount important, Julie is actively involved in the Edenhope Community including holding office in both the Henley on Lake Wallace Incorporated and Vision and Voice of Edenhope. Julie is also actively involved in the Edenhope and Apsley Football Netball club and loves to spend time with her family, especially her grandchildren.
