Grace isn’t your stereotypical bean counter. While she enjoys making sure all the debits and credit are right, Grace thrives on stepping back to look at the big picture and helping develop and execute The Fold’s strategy. A natural problem-solver, she likes to get into the detail and discover what’s really going on.

Her career initially took a very traditional path – starting in a small accounting firm, moving to investment banking and working in several other businesses, but Grace has really found her groove at The Fold. She can flex her strategic muscles and help the team make the big decisions, while still being intricately involved in every transaction. Whilst a lot of our clients don’t see Grace, she’s indispensable behind the scenes. Always there to offer advice, help people understand the reporting and explain what it all means in everyday language.

With The Fold, Grace has also finally found the key to that elusive work life balance. Our flexible work arrangements and supportive team enable her to spend quality time with her two daughters while also indulging her passion for Excel and detailed management reporting. Weekends are spent watching netball matches, playing board games, going bike riding and relaxing with her family. While her passion for travel has been curbed of late, she’s planning the next big family adventure to the US when they can get away.

Open your arms to change but don’t let go of your values.
