We are extremely excited to have welcomed three new staff members to our team.

Emily Yarwood joined us at the end of May 2023 as a new tax manager in a part time role. Emily brings with her a wealth of experience in public practice having worked in the profession for more than twenty years. She will focus on looking after a variety of clients predominantly in the areas of taxation and business services, and will work Mondays to Thursdays. Emily loves spending time with her family and friends and enjoys going to the gym and practising yoga. Emily is the consummate professional and is quickly settling into her new role.         

Gabby Urbancic-Curtale also joined our team at the end of May 2023 in a part time role. Gabby brings with her many years of experience having worked at the ATO in a variety of roles. Gabby is keen to learn ‘the other side’ of things and is proving to be a valuable team member working in our administration area. In her spare time Gabby loves to paint and enjoys walking for exercise. Gabby has a wonderfully caring and welcoming manner and will be working Tuesdays to Thursdays.

Haley Watson has commenced as our new receptionist and joins our team in a full time role. Haley has impressed with her maturity and professionalism which are beyond her years. She has much experience having worked in a busy retail environment, and was looking for a career change and keen to explore working in a professional office. Haley is a keen netballer in her spare time and loves socialising with her family and friends.


Rita Gee is leaving her reception role at Messenger Zerner to commence retirement at the end of this month. Whilst only with us for a short time, we will miss Rita’s experience and professionalism and her contagious laugh! We thank her for her assistance over the last year and wish her all the very best.

We again take this opportunity to thank each one of our hard-working and loyal staff for their efforts, and for navigating the constant challenges of life. We are extremely proud of everyone and we really look forward and are ready to face the challenges and opportunities ahead !
