Introducing Michelle

This month, we sat with Michelle Lee's Identity; our reality TV-loving, shiraz-drinking bookkeeping superstar!

How long have you worked at Scantek?

Time has flown by; It’ll be 1 year next month!

What is your job role at Scantek?

I’m a bookkeeper. 

What does being a “bookkeeper” entail?

I help support our team by maintaining the company’s day-to-day financial transactions, overseeing payroll, and working alongside customer service to ensure our client’s needs are met at all times.

What do you like most about your job?

I love the people I work with; everyone is very supportive of each other. I enjoy working with numbers and the sense of everything being organised and balancing!

The Scantek Team

What is the best career lesson you’ve learnt so far?

With the right company and team, you can balance your personal and work life. After dedicating 10 years to raising my children full time, this was very important to me, and I find I can achieve that at Scantek.

What would you do if you weren’t a bookkeeper?

I love animals, so I would probably be a vet! Unless there’s a job I can get paid for just cuddling animals, then I would do that!

Where’s your favourite place in the world?

I am probably living in it! I have done a lot of travelling in my time. London, Holland, Malaysia – I loved them all but happy to be back home in Australia.

What do you like to do when you are not working?

I enjoy running with my husband, spending time with the kids and afternoon wines with friends. 

What’s a fun fact about you many people may not know? 

I have done a couple of half ironman’s. I used to spend most weekends competing. Loved it!

What is your personal mantra?

Just try! Sometimes I let self-doubt creep in and, I have to push myself to at least give it a crack. 

My inspiration are my kids – They are fearless! 

If you could meet anyone, who would it be and why?

Robin Williams so that I could give him a big hug. ~ “Everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about. Be kind. Always.” – Robin Williams.

Three words that best describe you.

Organised, loyal, introvert

What’s the one thing you can’t live without?

Family of course (and a good glass of shiraz)

What TV show / Movie are ashamed to admit you, love? 

Reality TV – It doesn’t matter what it is; I love them all. Beverly Hills, Judge Judy, Big Brother, it’s a problem I don’t care that I have! 

If you could have any superpower, what would it be? 

Cloak of Invisibility because I want to know everything!

What is the one food that you cannot resist?

I know you say one, but Lindt Dark Chocolate and Thai Food. I love them equally as much; it’s impossible to choose!
