My career started in London, working in a number of merchant bank payroll departments. Following this I went on to become the National Group Payroll Manager for a large retail store. After a break to have my three children I decided to use my finance knowledge to work as a bookkeeper for a firm of accountants in Reigate. This led to me working as an accountant to produce company accounts for 75 clients, as well as rolling out new real-time accounting software to clients. A move to West Sussex brought me to Tulip Accounting, where I get a real sense of fulfilment from interacting with and helping our clients.
