Sarah Haerewa

Sarah Haerewa

Bookkeeper

Sarah is a qualified bookkeeper and is Xero Advisor and Xero Payroll Certified. Her congenial manner, keen eye for detail and commitment to quality and accuracy mean she aces internal and client accounts. Sarah has a knack for training new Xero users in a way that resonates with them and thrives on helping others learn the most efficient way to achieve tasks.

Sarah currently resides in New Zealand with her husband and two sons. They are enjoying the lifestyle over there and Sarah is thrilled that with today’s cloud based environment she can still work with Aspire while living in New Zealand. We do hope she’ll return to Brisbane one of these days but by the looks of all the photos of her smiling face running the trails in NZ we’re not sure how soon that will be!
