Meet the #iKTribe: Melissa Reed

It's all in the numbers! Meet Melissa Reed, our Finance Fundi and Management Accountant here at iKhokha.



For the love of numbers…

The #iKTribe is a family, built on different personalities, backgrounds, talents and abilities. Meet Mel, our Finance Fundi and Management Accountant at iKhokha. She has a great sense of humour, quirky perspective and is just a hellava awesome someone. Here’s what Mel had to say:

 

 

Who is Melissa?

I am a down to earth, easy going, fun loving person (or at least I try to be 😉) I love anything cats and absolutely despise people who have no respect for our country’s laws! For fun, I love to run – 21km is my game. I am driven by the desire to persevere and achieve at any given task.

 

What’s your role at iKhokha?

I’m the Management Accountant and I deal with the day-to-day running of the numbers behind this card machine business 😊

 

Who is Mel outside of iKhokha?

Outside of iKhokha, I am wife to my incredible husband and love to spend time with family and friends. Oh oh, I do wish I spent more time on the beach haha.

 

What’s your biggest strength?

Mmmm…my biggest strength is my ability to tackle a challenge, head on.

 

What is the name of the last book you read?

Everything is F*#ked by Mark Manson.

 

Your advice to yourself on how to handle a stressful situation?

Stop. Take a step back and understand the situation. Then dive right in and deal with it.

 

Describe iKhokha in one word.

Home.

 

If you were a crayon, what colour would you be?

Green.

 

What’s the most embarrassing fashion trend you used to rock?

My plastic shoes! Oh yeah hahaha.

Hey, I’m Samwise. The Storyteller and friendly face behind the words, here at iKhokha. When I'm not dotting my i's and crossing my t's, I set out to conquer the universe in other ways…behind a camera lens, on radio or being a Podcast Princess. A perfect day? Curling up with a great book in one hand and coffee in the other. A perfect life? Smiles, giggles and the company of my devilishly gorgeous labs.
