Joanne McCauley CPA

Managing Partner

Joanne has had a varied career in Accounting and Finance since 1986. Previous employers include the Reserve Bank of Australia, NSW Treasury Corporation, JP Morgan and Chilis Texas Grill. Joanne found her way into the field of taxation in 2002 through a position with Hadleys CPAs in Baulkham Hills. It was here that Joanne found her passion in tax law, combined with other business experience which allowed her to provide clients with practical and understandable solutions to their accounting problems. She founded Jigsaw in 2008.

In her spare time, Joanne enjoys keeping fit and being a footy mum. She and her family share a love for Rugby League. Whether it is watching her son play, her husband coach, or watching professionals play on television – if it’s Rugby League, she will be there.  Her favourite times are when the whole family are over for dinner and can all sit around the table while sharing a meal and a conversation.
