Experience

I have worked with Springfords for over 14 years and I am now an Associate in the firm providing accountancy and audit services, along with overseeing the provision of tax and other services, to a range of clients.

A solid grounding in accountancy, audit and tax services was gained during my CA training with Scott Oswald, where I worked with a range of clients from individuals to larger owner managed businesses.

I gained valuable post qualification audit and accountancy experience from working with large privately owned and international companies while working with two international accountancy firms. In particular I gained valuable exposure to systems of internal control which is relevant experience when working with companies of all sizes.

My passion is working with owner managed businesses and this is supported by my experience to date.
