Keep Me Posted began in 2009 under the name of Buzy Bee Bookkeeping, running out of Arayna’s home. After 6 years of working out of her house, Arayna decided to expand her business and move into a more accommodating office space. After renting different spaces for over 10 years, Arayna was finally able to take the plunge and purchased her own office building in 2021.
Now with 4 employees, and serving clients from all over Vancouver Island, Keep Me Posted Bookkeeping has been busier than ever.
Arayna has over 20 years of bookkeeping and office management experience. She attended Malaspina University College in Nanaimo, and earned an Office Administration Certificate. She was born in Ontario, and moved to British Columbia with her family when she was 6 years old, living on Vancouver Island for a majority of her childhood. Arayna is a mother of 2 children, and enjoys running, hot coffees, and good books.
Coty has worked in Corporate Accounts Payable positions before joining the Keep Me Posted team in 2018. Coty has lived in British Columbia her whole life, growing up in a fishing family. She raises her 2 daughters in the area and her hobbies include fishing, riding her horses and exploring the beauty of Vancouver Island.
Natalie joined the Keep Me Posted team in April of 2021, and brings a background of customer service and administration skills. She attended the University of Fraser Valley and acquired a Bookkeeping for Small Businesses Certificate. Natalie is a born and raised Vancouver Islander, who has lived in the Oceanside area her entire life. Her hobbies include reading, and collecting Starbucks reusable tumbler cups (Fun Fact: Her collection is up to 19 cups and is still growing!). Natalie’s perfect Friday night is hanging out with her friends and playing Mario Party.
Rachel joined the Keep Me Posted team in May of 2021. She has completed an Applied Business Technology certificate specializing as an Accounting Assistant. Before joining the Keep Me Posted team, she worked as a Real Estate conveyancer and administrator.

Rachel’s perfect day begins with a slice of toast with PB & J on top and ends with a very tall glass of wine.

Jo brings immense amounts of knowledge to our office including critical thinking and observation, which come in handy when it comes to Bookkeeping.
