I’m Jacqueline (Jacqui for short) Parrott, co-owner of Kiwi Accounting Solutions (Kiwi As) with Alastair, office administrator and general dogsbody. I’ve been involved in the business since the outset.
I started work as a legal secretary in Te Awamutu before moving to Melbourne, after which I came back to the Waikato and worked both in Hamilton and Te Awamutu. I then became involved in the world of panel and paint alongside bringing up my two children.
I oversaw the day-to-day running of the business, including Xero. Alastair needed someone to do the same at Kiwi As and it was a good opportunity for us to work together and for me to learn more about what he does.
Having booked work in and ordered parts, etc. I am now learning the other side of business – why I did what I did. I love it.
