I have worked in public sector audit for my entire career and have more than 20 years’ experience. Being passionate about the NHS and wider public sector, I joined the firm in November 2012 from the Audit Commission and have been fortunate enough to work with a wide variety of clients across the Midlands. After being promoted to director in 2019, I have worked primarily with NHS clients, both in external audit and internal audit roles. The sector continues to face significant challenges and it is fantastic to be able to share approaches through my role that are working with colleagues and clients.
I am known for excellent client service and being pragmatic and solution focused. As both a chartered accountant and qualified company secretary, I have worked with a number of clients to strengthen governance arrangements. I currently work with a broad range of provider NHS Trusts but have also enjoyed working with the blue light sector, (Ambulance, Fire and Police).
During my career, I have worked with some of the largest trusts and blue light clients in the country. I have delivered complex external audits for clients including the transfer of services and significant financial sustainability challenges. I have also led the delivery of large internal audit programmes focusing on key risks and undertaking detailed work in some of the most challenging areas of delivery. Key areas include improvement programmes, estates and workforce.
I am passionate about supporting the public sector and volunteer as a Governor for our local primary school as well as being an active supporter of CIPFA and a member of HFMA as a member of their West Midlands Branch Committee.
