Summary of Experience in Social Accounting and Audit

I began driving Maleny Credit Union's social accounting process in 1999 and have mentored a number of enterprises, including working with Mission Australia Queensland for over five years. Along with mentoring I have been a SAN approved Social Auditor since 2002.


With an early grounding in the social sciences I have pursued concerns for organisational social responsibility, accountability and sustainability.

My background is in the management of projects concerned with health and well-being followed by a change of direction in 1994 when I undertook a Masters Degree in Environmental Studies. On completion of the degree I began driving Maleny Credit Union's social accounting process.

In 2002, I visited the United Kingdom to research social accounting trends. A number of working relationships were strengthened as a result of this trip and especially connections to Social Audit Network UK.

In 2002 I established the independent social accounting and audit consultancy, 'Accounting for Life'.
