Name: Rachel Nixon
I grew up on a sheep and cattle property in Mitchell, Qld. I am very passionate about the rural industry, hence my return to the area once I finished boarding school at Glennie in Toowoomba, Qld.
I developed my love of accounting when I was at school and received the Accounting award for grade 12. I joined the CondonTreasure team in 2005 as a trainee accountant (not long after I met my now husband of nearly 10 years), and completed my studies externally through USQ. During this time I was appointed a manager in 2010, and finished my Bachelor of Commerce majoring in Accounting in 2011.
In 2012 I took maternity leave to welcome our first daughter, Hannah, and then was back for a brief period in 2013/14 before taking leave again in 2014 to welcome our second daughter, Samantha. I returned to work as an accountant position in October 2015 on a casual basis two to three days a week, and absolutely love it. CondonTreasure offers the perfect work/family balance for me – especially since my husband, who works for oil and gas works, is away a lot!
Outside of Work
When I’m not at work I love spending time with my girls – even if it means running them around to gymnastics, dance, swimming and rugby! I also love cooking and gardening. We own 4 acres just on the edge of town where we built our family home, and I have big aspirations of that 4 acres being a pretty sensational lawn and garden area!
In my spare time I also do a bit of private bookkeeping and just recently received my BAS agent registration. When I’m not doing any of the above we also head to Mitchell to help my parents with mustering. Safe to say I like to keep busy and am never bored!
