Prior to joining the profession, I worked in retail, hospitality, and finance before starting my career as a trainee accountant at Watson Buckle when I was 25. Since then, through my hard work and dedication, I have progressed through the practice to become a Director.
I help my clients with their accounting, tax, and business advisory needs as well as guiding the firm alongside my fellow Directors.
I have a really varied client portfolio, but I predominantly collaborate with owner-managed SMEs across many sectors and of varying sizes.
I also support FCA registered companies, manufacturers and pension schemes through my audit specialisms.
My goal is, and always has been, to successfully lead our firm through the changing landscape of the accountancy sector.
My favourite part of my job is the people side – the regular interactions with clients and staff to develop exciting relationships.
I get satisfaction from helping our clients and staff to achieve their goals, but I also love the challenge of being the firm’s audit and accounts technical specialist and the continuous learning that goes with that.
My clients would say I am open and honest with a passion for providing an excellent service. However, what is most important to me is that I am always smiling.
A little personal
Outside of work I love mountain biking, Pilates, music and dancing, as well as spending time with family, friends and my gorgeous two children.
