Another week, another team member. Yes, it’s time for you to meet one of our star accountants at Shuriken Consulting.
Based in our Dural Office, she is an amazing person and an excellent professional who loves both her career and people.
Her name is Vannara Ouk and she is a valuable part of Shuriken Consulting. We’re so lucky to have her on our team!
Let’s find out more about Vannara…
An exceptional accounting career starts with an exceptional accounting education…
Vannara’s accounting career started a few years back with her accounting education. She completed a Bachelor Degree of Business and Commerce in Accounting.
After finishing her studies, she was eager to acquire as much experience as possible. Vannara initially worked in an internship as an assistant accountant.
Not long after this role, Vannara started an internship with Shuriken Consulting at Hornsby, which was known as Aussie Tax Time at the time.
She did such a great job, we wanted her to be part of our team for good!
So we offered her a permanent position at Shuriken Consulting as a full-time accountant.
Fast forward to today: Vannara is now an accountant at our Dural office.

Accountant Extraordinaire at Shuriken Consulting Dural
Vannara has become a permanent, reliable and indispensable part of our team. She is not just an accountant, she is our accountant extraordinaire.
We love the unique way in which she can add value to our company. Vannara not only loves her job, she is also great with people. This is what promotes a simple accountant to the title of accountant extraordinaire.
With a strong focus on customer service and building relationships with our clients, we think she’s a perfect fit for our team!
How does a typical day in the life of an accountant at Shuriken Consulting look like?
Vannara will tell you it’s both challenging and engaging. She feels a thrill of excitement, (though it might not seem like it in your eyes). Accountants are pretty unique that way…
Some of Vannara’s daily responsibilities include:
- Preparing individual, partnership, company and trust tax returns and financials
- Bookkeeping, IAS & BAS
- Organising and maintaining tax payments and tax affairs
- Liaising with clients and ATO
There are plenty of things to be done at our Dural office and Vannara does an amazing job at managing it all like a pro while bringing a smile to our clients’ faces.
What makes Vannara excited about coming in the office every morning?
“Working with a wide range of amazing people and building lasting work relationships with our clients,” she says, with a hint of sparkle in her eyes.
Vannara also loves the ‘nerdy’ side of accounting. She loves to research particular tax laws and apply that knowledge to her everyday accounting activity.
Being an accountant at Shuriken Consulting has also helped Vannara gain an extensive amount of business awareness and knowledge.
If Vannara was to give you a piece of advice, it would be this …
“Surround yourself with assets, not liabilities.”

Life outside Accountancy: myth or reality?
Vannara would say it’s reality.
She’s living proof life does exist outside accountancy.
Because when she’s not working, Vannara loves to exercise and go horse riding.
Working in an office all day long can have a toll on your body. Standing in front of your computer all day and not getting the exercise and movement your body needs.
This is why, after work on or weekends, Vannara compensates the sedentary office life with outdoor recreation and sports.
Her favourite outdoor activity is horse riding. What makes it her favourite is that it perfectly blends her love for sports and animals. Gets her heart pumping… literally.
Here’s one thing not many people know about Vannara…
She’s a softy for all animals – horses, cats, dogs, you name it. Vannara is an “animal whisperer” sometimes. If you spend enough time with her you can tell animals make her soul happy.
