Director

Cheryl is the founder and owner of Finesse Tax & Business Advisory. As someone who is strongly led by their values, Cheryl has always been passionate about supporting small businesses and the people at their heart.

Having spent 18 years in accounting, including three years as a partner in an Adelaide firm, Cheryl took the leap and founded Finesse Tax and Business Advisory in 2022. She leads an amazing and proactive team who are just as passionate about her clients’ success as she is.

Cheryl doesn’t just talk the talk – she walks the walk, too. She is an impassioned advocate for tax reform and small business; has been a trainer for the Tax Institute of Australia; trains and mentors other accountants and advisors; and is a recognised expert in complicated tax situations.

On a Friday night you can catch Cheryl wearing her coach’s hat for her son’s soccer team or mercilessly beating her kids and husband on their family board game night.

Heidi is Finesse’s accountant in training. Joining us from a career in banking and finance, she decided it was time to pursue her career’s true desire – Accounting!

From her time in banking, Heidi knows she loves working with numbers and finding solutions for people which gives her a strong foundation to be our next compliance champion. Heidi will be assisting Cheryl with the preparation of tax returns and financial statements.

Like the rest of our team, Heidi is a strong supporter of South Australia and can be found exploring our gorgeous state with her family. In December you are likely to find our office light up like a Christmas tree as Heidi’s infectious joy of Christmas decorating is on display.
