Our Story

Pip and Mary founded Perfectly Balanced in 2016. Although they come from different working backgrounds, they bonded over their love of problem solving and calculus. The business has gently grown over the years, and there is now a team of 8 based between Kapiti and the Wairarapa in Wellington, New Zealand.

In 2022, we made the exciting step of officially joining forces with Emma, and starting Perfectly Balanced Accounting to meet all our clients financial needs.

Meet The Team

Mary Long Bookkeeper in Paraparaumu

Mary Long

Director & Bookkeeper

I LOVE what I do! I really enjoy working with clients and becoming part of their team. I understand that people don’t go into business to do the books – but that is exactly why I did! 

I’m passionate about each and every business Perfectly Balanced works with and get great satisfaction seeing my client’s confidence in their numbers grow. Clients often bounce ideas around with me as I have an intimate understanding of where they are at and where they want to go.

I’m fun, intelligent, caring and love spending time with my family, riding my bike, and tramping with friends and my dog Badger.

Pip Wilkinson Perfectly Balanced

Pip Wilkinson

Director & Bookkeeper

I’m passionate about my clients and intimately understand the challenges faced by businesses.

I’ve always had a knack for numbers, patterns, and systems, ensuring that businesses are running smoothly. The team and I at Perfectly Balanced stand by you throughout your journey, ensuring you have the best and most up to date information to ensure your business is going where you want to take it.

I’m a straight shooter, who loves spending time with my family and friends; wine, hiking, quiz nights and visiting the family farm.

Emma Hall

Director - Perfectly Balanced Accounting

I enjoy seeing others succeed in life and work, taking great pleasure in helping them along the way.

I’ve had 11 years’ experience from Bookkeeping up to full Accounting Services. I love a challenge and am dedicated to obtaining the best outcome. Be it systems and processes or complex accounting problems, I’ll put you at ease, sort it out and explain it in plain language.

I grew up in a small rural town but have spent the last 16 years living on the Kapiti Coast. I love a good social gathering, spending time with family and friends, being active with my two children and a spot of fishing!

Nicola Bookkeeper in Greytown



I’m an experienced administrator with a wide variety of skills in different industries. 

I enjoy working with numbers and making things make sense.  But most of all I love working with people, hearing their story and helping them succeed in their business.

Outside of the workplace I enjoy being outdoors with my family and friends and finding a good balance between wine and food… and the gym.
