Megan Balie

Finance Manager

Our intrepid Finance Manager Megan heads up the accounts department. Megan grew up in the Cape Winelands, South Africa. While studying Science at the University of Stellenbosch, she met a boy from Namibia who she would later marry and follow to where she now calls home.

In February 2014, she started at ATI as Charlotte’s right hand woman. As her role at ATI has grown, so has her love for Namibia and travel. She has fallen for the dusty roads, the animals (especially baby elephants), the wide-open spaces, and the never-ending sunshine. She’s also quite partial to a Mauritius beach holiday or two!

Last year she completed her degree in Accounting at the Namibian University of Science and Technology in style, finishing as the best Accounting 3rd year student. Megan’s favourite times in the office are chocolate cake birthdays, champagne Fridays, and Easter Egg hunts – she’s a girl with the right priorities! Oh, and she would choose a game drive and a good G&T over the city any day!

Megan says:

If you could only eat one food for the rest of your life, what would it be? Does gin count as food? No? Well then I’d say chocolate.. that doesn’t count either? Fine, a burger, but only if it comes with chips (and cake, can there be cake)?!

What is your favourite Namibian destination and why? Etosha! It never gets old, no visit ever equates to any other, and there is just something about losing yourself in a National Park, never knowing what animal you can run into next, that speaks volumes to the soul.
