In this series we’re spotlighting a different MWM Advisory team member each month, so you can get to know the team a little better.
Say hello to one of our Senior Accountants, Emma Sullivan.
“My time with MWM has allowed me to be part of the growth and success of many businesses, both on the Gold Coast and across Australia. It’s also enabled me to build on my own special interests and niche within the accounting and advisory world, which provides me with a great level of job satisfaction.”
What drew you to work at MWM Advisory?
I’ve actually been with MWM Advisory since before it was MWM Advisory. But what drew me to work with James and Darren, prior to MWM Advisory, was the ability to work with a team of like-minded and young professionals.
What do you enjoy the most about working at MWM?
Most definitely my clients. I’m lucky enough to work with some very inspiring and motivational business owners. I really enjoy and respect the relationships I’ve been able to build with my clients over the last decade.
What is the biggest challenge you’ve faced and how did you overcome it?
Becoming a first time Mum just before Covid 19 hit. At the time I felt a lot of shame admitting and accepting the fact that I did have some level of post-natal depression and anxiety due to my circumstances. But that awareness is shaping how I ask for help and overcome new challenges moving forwards.
What book/tv show/album are you reading/watching/listening to now and why do you like it?
Beyond the Birth Plan: getting real about pain and power, by Rhea Dempsey. I’m currently preparing to bring a baby boy into the world in early August, so my current book list and podcast playlist is full of pregnancy, birth and postpartum content.
What’s something that people might not know about you?
I’m completing studies to become a birth doula (birth support worker). I don’t necessarily plan on stepping away from accounting to pursue a career as a doula, however I have a keen interest in birth and empowering women to make informed decisions about their maternity care, and I’d like to be able to use my knowledge to shake up the system a bit eventually.
