I started my career as a trainee accountant in practice, obtaining my AAT qualification. Later, I transitioned to industry, where I stayed until 2016. During my industry tenure, I worked across manufacturing, private healthcare, and automotive sectors, handling various responsibilities within the finance functions of SMEs.
Returning to practice in 2016, I began to work towards my ACCA qualification and qualified as a Chartered Accountant in 2020. I believe my combined experiences reflect my ability to understand client’s needs, which enables me to provide targeted support and advice.
Describe what you do at Whitley Stimpson
I enjoy being ‘hands-on’ and actively involved, and my role as Senior Manager enables me to do this daily by being the first point of contact for my clients. Because of this, I have a varied and interesting range of client’s needs to meet every day.
I oversee a diverse portfolio of clients, which includes service companies, manufacturing-based concerns, agricultural clients, and trusts.
Why Whitley Stimpson?
Having gained experience in both large and small firms, spanning industry and practice, I firmly believe that Whitley Stimpson has struck the right balance. The focus and personal service provided to clients are, in my opinion, excellent.

The company demonstrates a clear commitment to both its staff and clients, maintaining a well-balanced approach that ensures support for employees while fulfilling client requirements.
What matters to you?
I believe in providing quality service for our clients and building a strong relationship that is needed to be a trusted advisor. Being accessible and offering guidance when required is pivotal to me. Additionally, I prioritise supporting colleagues in their professional growth. Beyond work, I enjoy spending quality time with my family and friends and pursuing my hobbies of songwriting and playing music.
