Team member in the spotlight: Monique Barreto-Macedo

  • Team member in the spotlight

    In this series we’re spotlighting a different MWM team member each month, so you can get to know the team a little better.

    Say hello to our Receptionist, Monique Barreto-Macedo.

    “Working at MWM means the world to me. To play an integral part in a company that is also walking the talk, rather than just talking it, is a rare find and I am excited and about what the future holds.”

    Tell us a bit about your role…

    I’m the Receptionist here at MWM Advisory and I really enjoy being the face of the organisation.

    I enjoy the opportunity to meet and greet clients who visit the office and making people comfortable is key for them to enjoy productive meetings here at the office.

    Some of my role includes mail, receipting of payments, office administration, assisting the practice manager and ordering supplies.

    I try to keep the office running like a well-oiled machine at all times.

    What is the most challenging aspect of your job?

    I’m not an Accountant and don’t know all their lingo, so it goes over my head sometimes, but I love Google! Knowledge at your fingertips. 

    What inspires you?

    Kind people with no drama!

    What book/tv show/album are you reading/watching/listening to at the moment and why do you like it? 

    I’m currently doing a course in ‘Understanding the Brain’. So, most of my reading is on the brain at the moment. I like it because it puts people’s behaviours into perspective. Our brains have become stressed in the fast-paced society of today.

    The best piece of advice I’ve ever been given is …..

    Be kind to everyone. You don’t know other people’s circumstances. Never assume you’ll never see that person again, because the odds say you probably will. It’s a small world after all.

    What do you enjoy the most about working at MWM?

    I love learning, and there are so many opportunities to expand my knowledge here.
