Michele Twigden

I established Pride Accounting Solutions Limited in 1995. After a career as Commercial Financier in Auckland, it was a great decision to come to Northland to live!

I have two grown-up sons who tower over me and still live in Kerikeri. Whilst living here, I’ve been involved in community volunteer work as Committee Member, Treasurer and Trustee of Schools and Hospice. Kerikeri allows me to enjoy my extensive gardens, fishing, swimming, glamping and boating. I’ve recently learnt to scuba dive at my ripe old age, so now I’m also a Kaimoana gatherer!

During my time in business, I have met and helped so many wonderful people, and look forward to continuing to do so. Our aim is to provide a personal service to small to medium businesses with understanding and respect for their specific needs. Every client has different needs.

Kristin Boehme

Originally from Germany and travelling the world for 4 years, I was lucky to make the contacts which enabled me to come to New Zealand. Since December 2016, I have been working for Michele as her Personal Assistant.

In Germany, my career background was based around a variety of Business Education, and my main profession was working as a Paralegal Secretary. Now that I’m employed by Michele (as well as being her future Daughter-in-Law), I have the opportunity to broaden my horizons, acquiring completely new professional skills so that I can be a support for Michele and our lovely clients.

‘Es ist mir eine Freude Ihnen unterstuetzend zur Seite stehen zu duerfen.’ – It is my pleasure to support you.


And let’s not forget M.J, who is in charge of Meeting and Greeting

I don’t take my work lightly, and put my heart and soul into making sure you are greeted properly. Sometimes I might bark a little, but it’s only because I’m excited to see you.
