SSAA Staff Member: Melinda Wyper

Melinda Wyper

Accounts Officer

Don’t be fooled by the title, I have plenty of personality! I have a broad buying and analytical background and worked as a retail buyer/business manager for 15 years before taking time out to look after my two gorgeous kids (& husband!). During that break I fell in love with my gym & even more in love with wine. Once my kids commenced school I decided it was time to come out of retirement & maybe put that commerce degree I got some time back into good use.

I studied bookkeeping as a sort of refresher course, picked up a few terrific clients (who I still service today) then landed at the SSAA in Sept 2014. As any parent knows, raising children requires excellent organisational & communication skills and the ability to multi task – pretty much the same as managing the accounts department here. I enjoy working with our small but dynamic team and I am really excited about the changes that our organisation is embarking on. I work Monday to Thursday but during busy times can be found here at all hours – even weekends or before sunrise.

My week nights & weekends are full of the usual kids sporting commitments – netball, basketball & football. Like most parents the weekend sleep in is all but a distant memory but we soldier on! When I do find some down time, I love nothing more than a gruelling body combat class or curling up on the couch with a good book and glass of red.

My super power is making wine disappear…what’s yours?
