The FIO Team
Introducing Lynn Birkhead
Lynn has been in the 'accountancy world' for over three decades now. Since emigrating from South Africa with her husband, Steve and two little children Catherine & Nick in 1994, she has worked in a number of Chartered Accountancy firms in Christchurch and Auckland.
Lynn's claim to fame;
B.Com Honours degree
Professional Tax & Business Advisor (PTBA) ATAINZ (Accountant & Tax Agent Institute of New Zealand)
Xero certified Advisor
Okay Lynn is far too humble to sing her own praises so I get to…
Lynn is a breath of fresh air in an industry that can often be perceived with negativity. Her desire to always conduct business in an ethical manner and do her best for her client whether it be at a day to day accounts support level or at a tax specialist level is commendable. Lynn has a great deal of experience to assist with managing your financial reporting and tax planning. Her desire is to help you to help yourself and thereby reduce compliance costs.
Introducing Dasha Babiarcik
Dasha and her husband Stan emigrated from the Czech Republic (former Czechoslovakia) to New Zealand in 2010 and decided to settle down in sunny Hawke's Bay. They have a beautiful daughter Isabella.
After leaving a credit control company Dasha has finally accepted that her attraction to numbers does run in her genes. Subsequently she was impressed by the philosophy and unconventional approach that our practice offers. As a volunteer treasurer and bookkeeper in an early childhood charitable organisation Dasha has decided to take another step toward her career and in November 2018 joined our team.
Dasha is a friendly, loyal and dedicated person who would go the extra mile to satisfy our customers.
Introducing Kym Blair
Kym is married to Brandon and they have four gorgeous children, Nina, Mason, Louis and Asher. She joined the FIO team in January 2013 and brought with her some wonderful fresh ideas, an enthusiastic spirit, a willingness to learn and best of all, friendly face with a positive attitude. Kym has a real flair for numbers and can answer most IT related questions when it comes to online accounting software. She is an excellent (& tremendously speedy) trouble shooter.
Kym's claim to fame;
Diploma in Accounting/Accounting Technician
Associate Tax & Business Advisor (ATBA) ATAINZ (Accountant & Tax Agent Institute of New Zealand)
Certified Xero Advisor
She is a qualified Accounting Technician via the College of Accounting Technicians and completed her studies to become an AT member of CA ANZ (Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand).
FIO has been born of an idea Lynn had growing in her mind some time ago and with the involvement of the very talented Artistic Designer Brandon Blair (Crimson Flower Original Designs) FIO was created!! We are thrilled to have her join the team and hope you enjoy the personality she has introduced to Figure It Out Ltd.
