I joined Grant Thornton in 2011 as a tax director in Milton Keynes and am now tax partner working across both the Cambridge and Milton Keynes offices. My clients are typically dynamic, agile businesses, many of whom operate or are considering operating internationally. I also act for a number of groups in the motor retail and food and beverage sectors.

With more than 20 years' experience in tax I have worked with a wide range of companies, many of which are owner-managed businesses but some of which are listed or have private equity investors. The common denominator – and what excites me about working with my clients – is understanding their strategic goals and explaining to them how tax can play a part in helping them unlock their potential for growth and achieving those goals.

Outside of work, I love spending time with my husband, eating out and then cycling to counteract the calories, and my daughter, trying (and failing) to beat her on the golf course.
