About me

With over 12 years experience as an Operations Manager for both BDO LLP, a large corporate and Seymour Taylor, a smaller accountancy firm, I have had a varied career which has not only given me a broad range of skills and experiences, it’s also taught me to be adaptable.  Whether it’s been managing support staff, organising a large office move or working at high level to define the career structure of the support staff, it’s been a challenging but exciting journey.

One area I’ve really enjoyed has been carrying out desk assessments for staff, a skill I was gained when working in London.  Trained by a Health & Safety Consultant we worked on some very challenging cases over the years, cases that have involved HR, Occupational Health and the line manager as we have sought to help the person.  At times my nursing background has been helpful as it’s given me a greater understanding into someone’s condition.

With such a wealth of experience, I bring a lot of knowledge to the table with clients and I enjoy the variety my business creates, whether I’m working for sole traders, large corporates or somewhere in between.

When I’m not doing working, I can usually be found out with my camera, working out at the gym or sitting in coffee shops with friends.
