Having worked for Grant Thornton since 1999, I feel it has been an honour to be part of such a dynamic organisation; particularly where the payroll service line has progressed from being an ad-hoc service offering, prepared by accountants, to being a service line in its own right, run by payroll professionals. I work with a variety of individuals, businesses and not for profit organisations looking after payrolls from 1 to over 500 employees.

One of the things I really enjoy about my role is to help find efficiencies for my clients, to reduce time for both the client and our team, in order to provide a distinctive client service. I love having straight talking, open and honest relationships with clients and it is so rewarding to watch businesses grow over a period of time and be there to connect them to relevant people throughout that growth.

I am proud to say that I was the National IPPM Payroll Award Winner in 2000 and when I'm not at work you can find me at the cinema, in the kitchen, at the pool or holidaying in exotic locations.
