Who’s behind the Number Nurse® mask?
A great team needs a great leader and Kirsten Hawke is the new Chief Number Nurse®.
Number Nurses was the brainchild of the late Gayle Buchanan. Gayle loved numbers ever since she knew they existed and she had her first crack at bookkeeping before she left school – helping keep track of the dollars and cents at her parents’ café in Wellington, New Zealand.
She quickly learnt she was far happier crunching the numbers rather than cleaning tables and washing dishes but the experience gave her a solid grounding in business.
Throughout the years Gayle worked in numerous businesses and industries, which gave her a good insight into the administrative and financial systems that work at the coalface for small businesses.
She worked for many years as a company director and has experienced the excitement and exasperation of running a business.
Gayle established her own bookkeeping business on July 4, 2011.
The move was just what the doctor ordered and growth has been exceptionally healthy.
Like the businesses and technology she worked with, Number Nurses® has evolved into far more than a bookkeeping service.
SMEs throughout the world seeking guidance with cloud software, such as Xero continuously called on Gayle’s expertise.
Completely at ease with the language of accountants – Gayle translated the diagnosis for her worried patients – just as you’d expect from a Number Nurse®.
The Number Nurses® team has grown to include equally enthusiastic, experienced and qualified admin and paperwork experts in several countries.
They are fully prepped and ready to work little business miracles anywhere at any time.
Happy and healthy clients

Number Nurses® action plan
Consultation is crucial and it is the time that we work together to find out how things are working for you, what are the annoying little niggles and what could require full-on specialist care.
If Number Nurses® don’t have an answer they won’t bluff their way through, which is far too risky, but they will know where to go to find the best solution.
Next, a business systems check-up is conducted to monitor vital signs that may require urgent attention, followed up with other actions in order of priority.
You are part of the entire process to ensure everyone is working towards the same outcomes.
Number Nurses® will make recommendation, implement changes and provide training for all those involved in the process.
We promise it will be much more fun than a medical health check and you can keep your clothes on.
The team stays in touch with you, following up on progress, helping address unexpected issues and letting you in on the latest developments that can further improve your business systems.
