I fell in to accountancy by accident over 15 years ago and have loved it ever since, there’s something therapeutic about numbers and balancing the books!
My career began helping the accounts lady in a SME business that still used manual accounting books and ledgers, my role was to help put these on to spreadsheets to update the way the accounts processes were completed. I was told I had a ‘knack’ for numbers and so after some debating I became a fully-fledged accounts assistant and started studying for my AAT (Association of Accounting Technicians).
Over the years I have worked for mainly SME companies in a variety of sectors including Catering Equipment, Estate Agents, Builders, Farmers, Entertainment, Hospitality and Wine Merchants. I have also worked for other Accounting Practices so have a fairly broad background that I feel helps me to integrate and understand most business sectors. My passion lies with start-up businesses and being able to help them to achieve their goals and watch them strive when given the best support. This doesn’t mean that there is nothing left for established firms, the busier I am the happier I am.
