Numbers add up for Joanne

EVERYTHING fell into place for Joanne Thurtell two years ago when she came to Yamba on a holiday to visit her identical twin Rachael.

The accountant landed a job and bought a house within a week, and her sea change began.

Last August the next step of the sea change fell into place when she opened her practice, SEA numbers, in the heritage-listed old Yamba school house, adjacent to Yamba Bowling Club.

Ms Thurtell said she loved the climate, the beaches and the community spirit of the Clarence Valley.

“I will be here for a long time. It's a lovely community to live and work in,” she said.

“It's big enough to have most things you need but small enough to get involved with community activities and contribute to the local community.”

A certified practising accountant for more than 15 years, Ms Thurtell is well qualified to crunch your numbers.
