I joined Ellacotts in April 2023 sitting in the Outsourcing team within the Corporate Services department. Ellacotts is a very welcoming company and a great place to work.

I began my finance career as a freelance Bookkeeper in the UK and Australia. In 2017 I returned to the UK and began working in industry as a Commercial Accountant until I moved into practice in 2021.

I work with varied clients from small sole traders to larger international companies with multi-currency accounts, overseeing their monthly management accounts, VAT returns, and other avenues. I have experience with a range of software such as Xero, Sage, QuickBooks, and FreeAgent, and aim to provide clients with efficient tools to streamline their business.

I am also studying towards completing my ACCA which will increase my knowledge and skillset and enable me to become a chartered accountant in the future.

Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family, cooking, and taking in the countryside scenery if the weather permits.
