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 Perfectly Balanced

Mary Long

Founder & Director

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

Founder & Director

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.

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!



As an experienced administrator with a keen interest in financial reporting & systems I know the importance of excellent bookkeeping as a foundation of business growth. I take pride in accuracy and results and have 20+ years’ experience working with owner operators in small business & non- profits to create systems, measure and achieve growth. 

My eagle eye for detail & weird love of spreadsheets enables me to look after the bookkeeping, while you have the information you need to work on your business.

My perfect antidote to a deskbound day is a session the gym. In the weekend I’m found gumboot deep in my expanding garden, and spending time with my family.

Lou Thompson


I have been a bookkeeper for various small to medium-sized businesses for over 25 years.  I like the ‘peace of mind’ the job gives clients when they know their business accounts are all taken care of.

I enjoy writing, tramping with my family and long days at the beach.

Joyce Spellacey


Hi, I’m Joyce and I discovered my love of accounting whilst completing a business diploma part time, when raising my boys. I like how everything must balance and there’s no grey.  I enjoy the rapport I have with my clients and I treat your accounts like they’re my own. Totally family orientated and completely blessed to live in Kapiti, surrounded by family & friends.
