Assistant Accountant


Alex joined Number$ Count in March 2020, right at the start of COVID-19, and a period that became incredibly busy for the team. Needless to say it was ‘go’ right from the start! Alex is currently in her final year at the University of Wollongong, studying a Bachelor of Commerce majoring in Accounting.

Having grown up in Bawley Point, Alex’s love of numbers began when she worked at Woolworths Ulladulla in the Cash Office. While the youngest in the office, she handled large amounts of cash, payroll for the 100+ staff, banking and ensuring price updates over the store floor. When Alex completed her
schooling at Ulladulla High and received early entry into UOW, she packed her bags and spent two and a half months travelling across Europe.

When Alex moved to Gerringong in early 2020 she emailed Number$ Count, and was soon welcomed by Leanne and the team, where she continues to work three days a week alongside her university studies. Alex says the experience she has gained has been extremely insightful to her studies, and also in providing assistance to her partner’s small business.

At Number$ Count Alex works on individual tax returns, auditing, bookkeeping, managing the accounts
for a local builder and supporting Leanne and other members of the team with other tasks.

Outside of work Alex enjoys walking, going to the beach, visiting her family down south and spending the weekends with her boyfriend.



Lynne has been with Number$ Count for over three years and is responsible for bookkeeping and payroll for a number of our clients. She is proficient in assisting clients with their Xero set-up and support.
