Everything that I do is driven by my genuine care for people. I am passionate about spending time with my clients and love getting to know them. I instinctively want to ‘give more’ and achieve this through actively engaging with everyone who I encounter at a deeper level. Alongside this, I always endeavour to provide relevant, concise and sound guidance.
Supporting my clients with compliance related matters such as audit, financial reporting, tax and statutory support is just the beginning – the real fun starts with the strategic advisory work that I do. This is where listening to my clients truly reaps benefits, as I am able to think freely and introduce refreshing ideas knowing that I understand their circumstances and point of view. I want people to end their interactions with me feeling better than when we started talking, whether about business or personal matters.

Who inspires you?
Elizabeth I – she ruled England for 45 years in an era of male dominance when her legitimacy as ruler was constantly under scrutiny. She sacrificed her life and happiness to be selflessly married to her kingdom and her people. She inspired a nation and left a timeless legacy.
