Vicki Grimshaw

I'm British, but have lived in New Zealand for 14 years. I've been a bookkeeper for six years, working for a variety of businesses and used to be the Treasurer of my local theatre. I have a Diploma in Accounting and used to work for Xero. When I'm not doing the books or teaching people how to use Xero, I am Miss La Vida, burlesque and cabaret performer as well as producer.

If it wasn't for freakishly short hamstrings and terrible turnout, I would have been a professional dancer. I studied dance as part of my degree at Auckland University and I like to dance (vintage jazz and tap) as well as play ukulele in my spare time.
