Kate Van-Stralen is an Accountant at Extrado and joined our team in 2012 as an office administrator (face of the firm).
In 2009, Kate obtained her Certificate II in Business Administration and later in 2011 completed the Certificate III through TAFE Queensland. Recently, Kate has achieved an Advanced Diploma of Accounting through TAFE NSW and is ready to commence study towards her CPA in 2016.
Due to her knowledge and confidence growing with study and internal mentoring, Kate has progressively moved from an administration to an accounting role. Since completing her Diploma, Kate is able to take on more complex tax and accounting work. She thrives on being able to assist clients with all their current tax requirements while also taking into account future obligations.
In her spare time, Kate spends a lot of time with her nose in a book, there is nothing better than exercising the brain with a good read. She also enjoys spending time outdoors, whether it be at the beach or simply in the garden at home. Kate loves to travel and is aiming to do some more travelling around Australia and eventually the world.
