Marika Lynch – AKA Boss Lady – knew from a young age that her future was going to be in accounting.
Her love of making business decisions based on numbers and data shows through in her passionate commitment to Valorium Advisors as a business and to the team.
A qualified Charted Accountant with a bachelor’s degree in commerce, Marika lives by the adage ‘Eliminate, Automate, Delegate’ as she balances her passion for numbers with her other roles as a wife and Mum.
She rates her clients and team mates her favourite things about working at Valorium and when she’s not bunkered down in the office you will find her exercising, spending time with her family or holidaying at Broadbeach in Queensland.
Her philanthropy is driven by her desire to give back to the charitable organisations’ that have supported her in the past. Marika donates both time and money to Red Nose, a local not-for-profit that supported her and her family following the loss of their first child. So too Ronald McDonald House provided much-needed help during her daughter’s long hospital stays.
This chocolate-lover thinks Julia Roberts would be the ideal actor to play her in a movie about her life, which is tentatively titled Working Mum. Although if she could watch on one movie for the rest of her life it would be Love Actually. She is no stranger to her favourite holiday spot Las Vegas, having traveled to the city many times! Marika loves to listen to acoustic music, her favourite classic TV show is Friends (current fave is Power), and she loves the time between Christmas and New Year when it’s easy to forget what day it is.
Oh, and Marika once owned a fire truck! No doubt a great conversation-starter during her fantasy dinner with Emma Isaacs, Celeste Barber and Ellen Degeneres.
