Cristie Robertson | Director

BAS & ASIC Agent

Cristie founded BKSP in 2001. Raised by entrepreneurs, she grew up working in family businesses. Moving from reception and office admin to the contexts of management consulting and financial planning, she eventually managed two highly successful restaurants. Over two decades of learning from the patterns of decline and growth, Cristie applies her unique know-how to shape her successful business.

With accounting and bookkeeping qualifications and as a certified and registered BAS and ASIC agent, Cristie heads up the dynamic BKSP team. An MYOB Partner and Xero Gold Champion certified partner, she brings 20 years of detailed expertise to her bookkeeping and business management work. Thriving on the agility of her sizable client base, Cristie knows how to get numbers in top shape, no matter the industry.

Away from work, Cristie enjoys discovering new places here and abroad, hanging out with her dogs and putting her mind to a seemingly impossible jigsaw. As a Mum of five, with only one still at home, Cristie and her hubby are enjoying more time to themselves.

Emma Burmister | Senior Bookkeeper

Dip. Accounting

Emma joined the BKSP team in 2017. Fresh from finishing her Diploma of Accounting, she learned the ropes as a junior before working her way up through skill and dedication. Now thriving as a senior, her energy and experience drive excellence in refining business management. Emma took time away to raise her beautiful boys before returning part-time. She now splits her time between our workplace and her home office.

With an affinity for interpreting payroll legislation, Emma is comfortable working across a multitude of industries. And she finds a particular sense of satisfaction in conquering the chaos of a messy old accounting file. Emma’s enthusiasm shines through; her uncompromising competence permeates and elevates all aspects of our business.

When time allows, Emma heads straight outdoors for a dose of sunshine: beach, bushwalking and all things nature. To balance her left-brain detailed, analytical work, she exercises her more intuitive, spontaneous brain with numerous creative side-projects.

Tamara Stook | Chartered Accountant

B. Accounting

Tamara has called BKSP home since 2021. As a Chartered Accountant with a Bachelor of Commerce (Accounting and Business Law), Tamara uses her extensive expertise to improve the performance of our client’s businesses. To upskill and engage her other talent, she’s currently completing a Diploma of Graphic Design: watch this space.

As our ace accountant, Tamara helps our clients reach their outcomes and seize all opportunities. Balancing guidance with ideas and functional assistance, her strong client partnerships are buoyed by her business acumen. Unshaken by and capable of confronting any accounting or taxation challenge, Tamara is motivated by creating order so numbers can better dictate direction.

Tamara loves life in the sunny Perth Hills with her hubby, her lively and lovely two-year-old daughter, and her Swiss Shepherd, Sadie. Weekends are family time: hunting for playground perfection or taking a road trip to clear out the cobwebs. Armed with a slew of new DIY skills, Tamara and her hubby are about to start building their new home.

Rosie Hegarty | Bookkeeper

Cert IV. Bookkeeping & Accounting

In 2018, Rosie became part of the BKSP crew. Her first passion was fashion design and technology, but the creativity and problem solving she brought to her original designs she now applies to numbers. Having completed her Cert IV in Bookkeeping and Accounting, Rosie’s perspective and drive add a valuable dimension to our business.

We call her our resident payroll guru. With accurate documenting skills and superhuman attention to detail, Rosie has a consummate command of compliance and moves effortlessly between industries. Unfazed by deadlines, she works wonders in high-stress situations.

As well as payroll royalty, Rosie is our CEO of tunes, our in-house DJ. If you visit on any given Friday, you’ll hear her RnB playlist; the perfect runway to the weekend. She also makes a mean afternoon margarita which she enjoys with friends. Vegemite-obsessed, she’s a dedicated salty, malty fan and will eat it with almost anything. Look out for Rosie on our socials.

Jasmine Lee | Administration & Socials

Dip. Graphic Design

Heading south from Lismore to the Gold Coast, Jasmine joined our team in 2021. Quickly settling into local life, she brings her flair for all things aesthetic to our business. With a Diploma in Graphic Design, Jasmine is augmenting her abilities by training as a bookkeeper and undertaking a Cert III in Business.

As our office all-rounder, Jasmine takes care of internal administration, data entry and our beautiful BKSP email campaigns. We also owe our suave-looking social feeds to her first-class creative software skills. Our resident tea-making connoisseur and office pet whisperer, Jasmine is an invaluable addition to our BKSP family.

Outside the office, Jasmine finds joy in trying new things, like food, wine and adventure. If the weather’s good, you’ll find her outdoors – thrill-seeking or chasing the sun. At home, Jasmine loves trying new tabs on the guitar or making art.

Bobo | Head of Security & Door Greeter

Bobo is our well-behaved Head of Security. She is often perched by the door ready to greet our guests with her gentle nature and is always on the lookout for any visitors who may be delivering treats (AKA the mail man or cleaner) with her beautiful big eyed look that she has mastered perfectly. A perfect addition to the BKSP team, Bobo also keeps our stress levels at bay with her calm presence in the office.

Bobo is a keen food enthusiast and when off duty, you’ll find her watching the girls eat with those big pleading eyes, chasing her ball or walking around the lake with her Mum.

Oscar | Security Personnel & Emotional Support Officer

Our sweet little guy who is perfectly sized for snuggling. Small but noisy, Oscar likes to bark and will let the parcel delivery guy and any guests know that he is there. With a keen eye for detail, Oscar will notice if your hand or foot is in a position that could afford him a pat and will paw at you until you comply. With a truly loving nature, Oscar fits in wonderfully at the BKSP office and keeps all of the team amused with his funny little mannerisms.

When there are no ‘security threats’ Oscar loves to carry his numerous soft toys around and take turns sitting on everyone’s laps on windy days.
