After obtaining my secondary education at Sir Bernard Lovell School in Oldland Common near Bristol, I tried a couple of options including working in the back office at C&A, before embarking on an accountancy foundation course at Bristol Polytechnic (now known as UWE).
I then entered into a training contract with a five partner firm of accountants in Clifton. Each had their own style and expectations thus giving me a wide range of experience. I joined Lloydbottoms in December 1987 and achieved qualification and membership of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW) in 1988.
Since then, I have worked with a wide variety of businesses, their owners and staff and with individuals of all ages and with varying levels of complexity in their accounting and taxation requirements.
I became a director of Lloydbottoms Limited early in 2013 and wish to continue the tradition of high quality, affordable but professional, personal service to all our clients.
I am also a governor of a primary school in South Gloucestershire, a church steward and treasurer as well as secretary to the trustees of my local village club. I have two teenage boys and the support of my husband and in my spare time I like to knit, bake and read!
