I am a Tax Senior in the Tax and Wealth Planning department and have worked at Ellacotts since October 2017.
I initially decided to go into accountancy back in 2005 after finishing 6th form, starting work in a small firm in the West Midlands, and in 2011 was given the opportunity to work within the personal tax team where I have gained valuable tax experience. I have spent a few years working in industry for a small design and build company as the Financial Controller, prior to starting at Ellacotts. I have enjoyed my return to practice, getting into the variety of tax work available and also becoming more involved with different clients.
My day-to-day role includes the preparation of tax returns for individuals, sole traders, trusts and partnerships along with Capital Gains Tax calculations.
When not at work, I will be found spending time outdoors with my young family, reading and I also do voluntary work within the Girls Brigade, where I have been a member since I was 5 years old.
