I am an experienced public services director, having spent over 15 years working with a range of public sector clients I started as a trainee in one of the big 4 professional services firms progressing quickly through to director before joining the firm in April 2016.
I am delighted to lead a great team of talented individuals in Scotland specialising in the provision of public sector assurance. I oversee the delivery of our external audit portfolio on behalf of audit Scotland and works across the local government, health and central government sectors. Alongside providing opinions on the respective financial statements I work with our clients to reach conclusions and judgements on their arrangements to ensure they have sufficient preparations in place to demonstrate governance and transparency, longer term financial sustainability and value for money.
In addition, I specialise in the provision of internal audit services advising our Scottish public sector clients on governance, risk and internal controls including sharing practices and supporting the assessment of risks.
I am recognised for being pragmatic, solution and outcome focused and acting as a good sounding board to bounce off ideas and suggestions.
Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my family and two children under the age of 10 keep me entertained and constantly amused.
