Leah Keown

Client Lead

Leah Keown - Client Lead

After working in Accounting & Bookkeeping roles for multiple sized companies in Canterbury, Marlborough and Nelson, I started my own bookkeeping business with the support and encouragement from previous employers. I wanted to make a difference in all I did in business and for others in business also. This is also a reflection of who I am. 

Having qualified with a Diploma in Accounting, being a qualified and certified bookkeeper, a member of the New Zealand Bookkeepers Association Incorporated, holding a Silver Bookkeeping badge, a Member of the NZPPA and a Performance Coach with Netball NZ, I have trained over the years and continue to do so to offer the best advice to all my clients. 

You will find me in the garden on the weekend as much as time allows especially in the netball off season. Or you can find me soaking up the amazing outdoors on offer in the Nelson Tasman area. I’m often out on my road bike or being outdoors in general.

As a business - Our Team Nelson

As a business and individual, I also support the Nelson/Tasman branch of Big Brothers Big Sisters, taking time out to spend time as a big sister to a very cool little girl in Tasman every week, this is a great way to give back and get out of the office too.

Netball is my passion and I am also a netball coach and mentor, mentoring both coaches and players within this role, being a performance coach having trained with Netball New Zealand and Netball Mainland zone over the years, is hugely important to me and something that gives me pleasure watching others benefit from and grow as players and people.
