After resigning from her job, Judy’s friends helped her realise that she didn’t want to work for someone else.
With over five years of experience in commercial accounting and twelve years of experience with internal and external auditing, Judy Brown wanted to be her own boss.
In 2016, that’s exactly what happened: Brown Audit and Assurance Services Pty Ltd was born.
At Brown Audit and Assurance Services, Judy helps not-for-profits, clubs, and companies in the Hunter region to comply with the Acts and Standards legislation and to take control of their finances.
Judy is passionate about working with clients who want to improve the internal controls within themselves and their business.
