Vijya Patel

Finance Executive and esoteric philosopher

Originally from London, Vijya isn’t your average accountant. When she’s not balancing numbers, she’s teaching yoga and meditation, practicing reiki, and centring her chakras. 

Vijya arrived in Australia from England in 2002 and fell in love with the sunshine and sandy beaches.

With nearly 14 years’ experience in Marketing and Communications, she has worked for leading organisations such as BBC Worldwide, Young & Rubicam Group, PPR Australia, and Blaze Advertising. Ever the all-rounder, she’s also completed stints in other industries such as Corporate Travel and Waste Management Services.

Vijya joined Step Change in 2014 with a Bachelor of Arts (Hons) in Business Studies.
