Practice Owner & BAS Agent - e-BAS Accounts

I live and work in Marshall, Victoria, in my home office running my small business, e-BAS Accounts. I am married and have 3 grown up children who have moved on and are making their own way in the world. I enjoy looking after my fitness and visit the gym at least 3 times a week. When the weather permits, my husband and I also enjoy walking around this beautiful town. We are also keen "foodies" and visit the multitude of cafes and restaurants on offer here quite often - hence the need to go to the gym! My business keeps me very busy so I don't have much time for much else, but what spare time I do have is dedicated to my family and children and their needs.
