I joined Grant Thornton in 2011 as a tax director in Milton Keynes and am now a tax partner based primarily in Cambridge. 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.
