Vilatda Leuangvanh

Vilatda (also known as Vila) moved to Australia at the end of 2009 on a student visa from Laos studying a Diploma of Accounting at the ZBA Zenith Business Academic. She enjoyed studying and continued with a Graduate Diploma of Accounting at the Victoria University in 2013 and finally a Master of Professional Accounting at the University of Technology Sydney in 2015. Vila has been a Qualified Education Agent Counsellor (QEAC No. O414) since April 2019.

Vila married her husband in 2013 and moved to Canberra from Sydney in 2016 when her husband was offered a job in Canberra. Vila is passionate about helping people with migration as she understands life as an international student and often spoke to many migration agents during her 6 years of study in Australia that didn’t have the care factor. Vila believes she can provide support and help people change their lives as moving to Australia after living in Laos has transformed her life in all facets.

Vila is fluent in English, Lao, Thai and Vietnamese which makes her a valuable linguistics asset to the company. Vila has been a value-added team member since July 2017 as she assists with daily administration of the Canberra Office, managing the LEAP Migration Manager, invoicing through XERO and the internal systems to support all client cases.

In a previous life, Vila also had her own travel agency for 4 years in Laos managing business registration, finance and compliance, creating marketing materials, booking advertising, attending conferences, managing budgets and researching and preparing travel itineraries. As a result, Vila understands Lao working relationships, doing business in Laos and customer service management.

If you have any questions specifically for Vila, she can be contacted at [email protected] or on +61 422 465 419.
