The call of the wild, the beach, the tramping and the people were too much for Manon, who relocated to Nelson from Auckland to take up a Senior Advisor position with WK Strawbridge.

Manon has worked her way up in the accounting profession; having started as a receptionist, she studied extramurally for her accounting degree from Massey University as a working mum. She has a variety of experience in accounting roles, having developed expertise working with clients in the agriculture and trade sectors, as well as trust accounting. 

Outside of work, she has a keen interest in genealogy, and languages and is excited to take advantage of the outdoor lifestyle by exploring the tramping and walking trails within the Tasman region.
