Vaughn Smiles

Project & Finance Administrative Officer
Vaughn started with Ausvet in Feburary 2019 as a Finance and Project Administrator in the Canberra office. He was born in Namibia, Windhoek and moved to Australia in 2000 when he was four years old. His parents are South African, which makes Vaughn South African, however he tells everybody he is African. Vaughn can fluently understand Afrikaans, but don’t ask him to speak to you in Afrikaans. He has been back to South Africa/Namibia multiple times and is hopefully planning to go again sometime in 2020.

Vaughn graduated from the University of Canberra in 2018 where he studied commerce, majoring in accounting. In the future, he wants to obtain his CPA or CA, and is very open to anything that may be relevant in the area of finance or project management.

Vaughn has also seen a small fraction of the globe. Vaughn has been to Abu Dubai, Singapore, New Zealand, South Africa (Cape town, Johannesburg), Europe (Greece, Croatia, Switzerland, Germany, France, England). Vaughn’s favourite place internationally is Croatia. In Australia, Vaughn’s favourite place is the Gold Coast.

In Vaughn’s free time he loves to play video games, go to the gym and catch up on sleep. On the weekends — if he’s not playing rugby — you can find him hanging out with friends, watching sport or down at the coast.
