I am a Manager, based at Smith Cooper’s Ashbourne office. I have over 20 years’ experience of advising a range of small owner managed business clients on all manner of accountancy and taxation matters.
What can I do for your organisation?
I can ensure that we provide a highly professional, but friendly service.
I qualified as a certified accountant in 2004 and have worked at a range of smaller accountancy firms in Staffordshire and Derbyshire building up my experience of smaller owner managed businesses and providing accountancy and tax services for these.
I joined Smith Cooper in 2008, and have taken over a mixed portfolio of clients that I could turn my expertise to.
I have experience in working with clients across a range of sectors including agriculture and construction.
Having worked for smaller accountancy firms, I have been able to focus my skills on dealing with sole traders, partnerships and smaller limited companies dealing with both the preparation of the annual financial statements and taxation requirements.
With most of my working life being spent in the rural communities, I have gained a sound knowledge of the preparation of farming accounts whether they are sole traders, partnerships or limited companies, large or small.
I can also help with the use of most current computer packages including Sage, Quickbooks and Sum-it.
Outside of work I am currently a County Vice President for Staffordshire County Federation of Young Farmers Clubs. This can involve judging or stewarding competitions as well as being caught behind the BBQ helping feed hungry competitors, judges and stewards! I have a life membership of Ashbourne Shire Horse Society and annually help out in the livestock section at Ashbourne Show. I also enjoy going for walks in the countryside, with my husband and dog.
