I have been working with Carolyn for over 13 years and at Ledgers from inception, which has resulted in my acquiring extensive bookkeeping and tax return production experience. I also work for a St James’s Place partner in the Financial Services sector, where I have acquired a broad knowledge of mortgage, investment and pension processes, which creates a natural synergy between my dual roles, enabling me to have a greater understanding of how best to help clients with their tax requirements.

In my spare time, you’ll find me in the garden trying to work out why the perennials I planted last year seem to have turned into annuals once again or enjoying good food and wine with my family.
