Melanie joined WK straight after leaving school in 2013, working her way into the role of senior advisor by 2018.

A digital native, Melanie joined WK not long after the move to Xero, is fully Xero certified, and specialises in management reporting and foreign tax accounting.

Outside of work, Melanie switches from helping her clients to helping her dance students, teaching Jazz two nights a week at the Marlborough Academy of Dance.

She herself dances, enjoys walking the Wither Hills, and is even trying to tick off a goal to walk up Mt Vernon 100 times within a year.

Melanie has lived in Marlborough all her life, loves the climate and the short commute across town. She lives with her husband Josh, who is a great mountain biker and encourages her to switch her walking and dance shoes for the bike from time to time.
