I would describe myself as a social and outgoing individual; I enjoy walking, spending time with family and travelling when we get the chance. I have 3 children who are now growing up and are looking for new and interesting challenges. 

I began my career after leaving College, having completed a Secretarial Course, by joining a small Finance office where I learnt a lot about all areas of bookkeeping and finance. I then went on to run my own business and have my family, after which I returned to work and joined Onogo.

I have been part of Onogo and the growing retail world for 6 years and I believe my knowledge of the Company and what makes it tick is very important. My past experience, dedication and commitment to my role and others within the wider team helps me continue to contribute to the ongoing success of Onogo. Initially what attracted me to Onogo was it being an upcoming e-Commerce company with lots of opportunities. I started as a Finance Assistant and then as the business grew I also took on responsibility for HR which, being a people person, was well suited to me. 

The opportunity arose for me to move in to the Finance Manager position to grow this area as the business was developing fast, so for the last 2 + years my role has involved developing the efficiency in finance, overseeing the finance function, ensuring all payments are made on time, meeting financial deadlines for our CEO and the Board of Directors, paying our team (always good to keep them happy as people are key to a successful business) and building relationships with suppliers. Given the nature of our business and the  number of suppliers we are dealing with, collating information from external areas can be a challenge.  We are constantly looking for ways to improve our processes, through simplification, use of technology and automation of processes.  Kaizen, which is the Japanese philosophy of continuous improvement, is one of our core values and we work hard to put it into practice every day.

Every day is different at Onogo, which is what I enjoy, some days are challenging, but always in a good way. The fast paced growth of Onogo is a great environment to be a part of and we all have that proud factor. Onogo has a great team spirit and a great culture with values that the whole team aspires to.
