My accountancy training began when I started work in an accounts practice. After 3 years I moved to working in industry for a division of the Mowlem Group. Heavily involved in developing the IT Accounts System, this culminated in project managing the implementation of Oracle across the group. I then moved on to be Project Accountant for the Channel Tunnel Rail Link, auditing the construction from London to the Coast.

I then opted for a complete change, becoming a publican for 6 years and solely running a very successful village pub. Having become used to working for myself, I started up Tulip Accounting in 2006 and haven't looked back. I work with an amazing team and we all have the same goal – to provide our clients with a quality of service that is over and above what the average bookkeepers can or pertain to offer. Plus we enjoy what we do!

Prior to joining Tulip Accounting I worked at Airwave Europe. As Sales System Executive I managed their sales and purchase ordering systems for their major client accounts. Having worked with Sarah in the past, I jumped at the chance to join her team, and started here at Tulip in 2014 to provide client support and administration. I now also assist Sarah in all aspects of practice management.

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.

My interest in accounts originally developed whilst handling the practice accounts for a firm of solicitors. It then progressed further after the birth of my son, when I ran the accounts for two nursery schools. Having completed my foundation training in accounts, I joined Tulip Accounting in 2011. The diversity and range of our clients makes the work interesting and no two days are ever the same!

Having struggled to find a job in my original choice of career as an environmental scientist, I took on a position as an accounts assistant, and haven't looked back! I went on to complete my AAT and gained experience in numerous accounting systems. My IT skills have proved valuable here at Tulip Accounting, where we embrace the rapidly changing world of bookkeeping and the integrated systems on offer.

I began studying for a maths degree in 2016 and, having gained my AAT Level 2 qualification in 2018, I am currently studying for my AAT Level 3.Prior to this I gained experience in the retail and hospitality sectors, providing me with a sound understanding and belief in the importance of good customer service.  I love the great team spirit here and get the team’s full support whilst I’m completing my studies.  I am truly excited at the prospect of becoming a fully qualified accountant.

I was originally a PE teacher for 13 years and was also the School Sport Coordinator.  The role involved me working with 5 infant/primary schools (that fed into my secondary school) to promote, develop and support the delivery of high quality teaching and learning in PE and Sport. This took many forms from delivering inset training to primary staff, delivering model lessons, team teaching, helping with planning, organising and implementing sporting activities and generally being a mentor to the primary PE coordinator and supporting them in their role.  I took a career break when my second son was born in 2015.  During my university years I had gained some experience in an accounts department, and was keen to explore this as a new career challenge when I returned to work. Working at Tulip provides me with a varied role and the opportunity to gain a wealth of experience.

Specialising in consultancy and advice for the pub and bar industry, I bring an area of expertise to Tulip Accounting for our pubs and restaurant clients. With 30 years' experience in the trade I offer stocktaking services, backed by sound advice on managing GPs, stock and site/staff management, to help maintain and increase profit margins. Together with the financial systems used by Tulip Accounting we can offer publicans and restauranteurs a complete package, leaving them to focus on running their businesses.

My background is very much one of customer service. I worked for a leading international provider of executive offices for many years, liaising closely with a wide range of businesses to support their IT and administrative requirements. Initially based in London, I was then posted to the States to manage a centre in San Francisco for two years. On my return to the UK I managed a centre in West London. I thoroughly enjoy the diversity here at Tulip, as well as the ethos of putting clients' needs first.

Having obtained a BA degree in Economics in Hungary, I furthered my studies in England at Guildford College by doing Business English classes.
I worked for three years at the JobcentrePlus in Chichester as both a Financial Officer and a Personal Adviser.
Having taken a career break whilst my children were young, I joined the dynamic team here at Tulip Accounting. I thoroughly enjoy working with such knowledgeable colleagues and providing the team with a high level of reliable administrative service.

Starting my career at Barclays Bank I accumulated years of experience working in every aspect of accounting for companies, both large and small. I gained my qualifications during this time. I then spent eight years in Canada where I continued working in accounts. For the last twenty years I have focused on working with small businesses, helping them to manage their accounts, using either manual or computerised systems. I thrive on working with such a diverse range of customers and their individual needs.

I then joined a global engineering company as Finance Manager, gaining invaluable experience in the use of Sage Accounting, the import and export of stock, HMRC requirements, management accounts and cash forecasting. I came on board at Tulip Accounting in 2013. We have a very special team here, with everyone pooling their individual skills to provide diverse and professional support to all our clients.
