From counting the money in my mother’s purse as a child, to working in the school bank, and helping to run the school tuck shop in high school, I have always been passionate about, and wanting to work in finance.
I left school, and started my career on an employed YTS scheme for a very large PLC, where I worked my way through the various departments, gaining experience, starting from purchase ledger, through to management accounts, meanwhile studying for my qualifications.
Since qualifying as an accountant in 2001, I have worked for companies in different industries, gaining a vast amount of experience, including annual accounts, budgets, system implementation, monthly management accounts, setting up and monitoring cash flow spreadsheets, payroll and Vat returns, to name but a few.
My strengths lie, in problem solving, being analytical, improving processes, procedures, and in turn efficiencies.
I now run my own accountancy practice, where my aim is to work with, and support small businesses, by providing accountancy services in a friendly approachable way.
