Career history

I trained as an auditor with KPMG, qualifying as an ACA in 1991. I left the profession to gain experience as a management accountant. After two years, I returned to the profession to gain my tax qualification and have accumulated 25 years’ experience in tax, specialising in tax for owner-managed businesses. I worked my way through the ranks to be appointed as a tax partner in 2013. I joined Clive Owen as the tax partner for the York office in November 2017.

Career highlights

Qualifying as a chartered accountant while working full time and bringing up my son as a single mother.

Did you always want to be an accountant?

I wanted to be a veterinary nurse but when my older sister chose the medical profession, I changed allegiances to the accountancy professional.  My father’s accountant told me to go to university and take the degree I wanted, then concentrate on becoming an accountant.  I followed this excellent advice and read music, before buckling down to gain my accountancy and tax qualifications.

Hobbies and interests

My pets and family (in that order), dog-walking, classical music and skiing.
