Get to know Lauren!
A Victorian through and through, Lauren is a Melbourne Bayside local who loves nothing more than seeing her clients succeed. With over 20 years of bookkeeping experience to her name, Lauren makes sure that you’ll feel your business is in the best hands. Her easygoing and gentle nature has clients loving her as their bookkeeper, and it’s why we love her too.
Lauren loves her favourite AFL team, the Richmond Tigers, more than anything… okay, maybe not as much as her adorable pug, Fiddy (and she’d be happy to share pictures).
We started with Lauren 6 months before Covid, and without her we would be lost. Lauren has been so patient sorting out our mess, always replies to any concerns and sorts easily. Highly recommend Shoebox and Lauren.
"I started working with Lauren at Shoebox Bookkeeping in 2016. I can tell you that she has transformed my life. She is non-judgmental at the state of my accounts but more importantly she works tirelessly keep everything in shape. Lauren is responsive, organised and a true professional...oh and just a really lovely human being. If you need a bookkeeper look no further. You are absolutely in safe hands. Did I mention? The Shoebox system is simply the best! If you are currently in the position of comparing alternative bookkeepers then stop right now and call Shoebox, you'll not regret it."
"On behalf of Nunzio and myself, we would like to say thank you for allowing us to have another stress free year! We have appreciated your bookkeeping services and your continued support in helping us with our business. It has been refreshing to know that we have never been late lodging our BAS as your work ethics and knowledge are of a high standard. We also appreciate your quick responses to any of our phone or email enquiries."
"Choosing to engage Lauren as my bookkeeper has been one of the best business decisions I have ever made. She has made one of the more time consuming tasks of running a business utterly seamless. She has also proven herself to be trustworthy, honest and a wealth of knowledge on all things financial. I hope Lauren continues to be a part of my business for many years to come."
