Prasanthi Silva

Finance Officer

In my position, I’m responsible for providing a range of financial services including payroll, receivables and payables, along with assisting in the preparation of financial reports for the Board. Before joining Melaleuca, I worked in banking industry in Sri Lanka for eight years and completed my bachelor’s degree, majoring in accounting from Deakin University in Melbourne.

When I’m not working, I enjoy meditating, storytelling, public speaking and creative writing – particularly poems about how people have overcome life’s challenges. When it comes to people, I like to help them to resolve their problems.

My ultimate dream is to one day work within an orphanage and help these vital institutions to financially achieve their basic needs.
