Courtney Hockey

Courtney Hockey (Director)

Courtney grew up in the Franklin District and lives in Patumahoe on a lifestyle block with her husband, Brook, children, Richie and Bree, and dogs.

Courtney has always been a motivated person. Keen to get started with her passion for accounting, she finished high school at the end of Year 12 with such excellent grades and exceptional teacher recommendations that convinced her tertiary educators to allow her early entry in to the Bachelor of Business, without the NCEA Level 3 pre-requisites. Whilst working full-time, Courtney quickly completed her Bachelor of Business and Chartered Accountant studies, becoming a fully qualified Chartered Accountant when she was only 24 years old, ahead of all her peers.

Throughout her career, Courtney's passion for accounting and business has grown stronger and developed further. When starting out, she enjoyed the financial reporting aspect of accounting, then developed strong skills in accounting information systems and later found her real passion by working closely with clients in the business development and growth area.

With a business and two young children she knows how important it is to balance the demands of professional and personal life and enjoys helping clients find the right balance for them.
