Jade joined UCWB in October 2011, and is thrilled to be working for an organisation where she can combine her finance skills with her interests in community welfare and social issues. Jade holds a BA in Psychology, a Masters in Professional Accounting, and completed the Certified Practicing Accountants program in April 2013. She became Finance Manager in December 2012, with responsibility for the preparation and monitoring of annual budgets, preparation of audited financial statements, Board reporting, and liaising with the program managers to ensure the finance team are supporting service delivery.
Prior to joining UCWB, she spent 3.5 years working as an accountant for TransAdelaide preparing financial statements, board & management reports, and overseeing two stages of government department restructures. She is looking forward to further developing her skills while at the same time, supporting the valuable contribution the organisation makes to the community.
Jade enjoys music, travelling, reading, and spending time with her family.
