After eight years working as an accounting supervisor in Brazil, I noticed that I was missing something in my career and in my personal life. In 2010 I decided to leave my job to challenge myself by moving to Australia. The first challenge was to learn English so that I’d be able to find a job and secondly, the adaptation process was much harder than expected! The plan was to move back to Brazil after six months of learning English, which I hoped would enable me to build a better career in Brazil.
I fell in love with Australia, and so decided to extend my stay and studied for a Diploma of Accounting, Certificate IV in Business and then Masters of Accounting. The challenge did not finish there. The next step would be getting a job in accounting to get familiar with the Australian business culture and also put in practice everything that I learned from university, teamed with my professional experience back in Brazil. My first accounting job in Australia last three months as an intern in a bookkeeping firm. After the three months internship, I was employed as junior bookkeeper for two years before my journey with The Accounts Studio began.
After joining The Accounts Studio, I have not stopped developing my professional skills so that I can take the stress and hassle of bookkeeping away from my clients. In 2019, The Accounts Studio merged with Carbon Group to launch Carbon Sydney. I became a partner and so my career continues to develop.
