Part of the Opendoorz family since May ’23
Outside of work I love spending time with my family and two dogs. I also like to exercise, read, watch football and go out with friends.
I have always been good with numbers and been interested in business so I set up Numberwork Services back in 2012 to help small business owners stay up to date and on top of their finances.
After leaving university, I had a varied career working as a data analyst and as a training manager, but I’ve always been drawn back to that love of numbers and accounts. I had my children in 2009 and 2011, and it was then that I decided it was time for a change. It was an opportunity to go back to my love of finance but the chance to combine that with the skills I’d developed in my training role and really help and support people running their own businesses.
I trained as a certified bookkeeper with the Institute of Certified Bookkeepers (ICB) am now a Fellow of the ICB, a qualified payroll advisor, a certified QuickBooks ProAdvisor and a Xero partner.
What I really love about working with my clients is helping and supporting them build and grow their businesses. Many small business owners set up on their own because they have a passion, skill or expertise and believe they have something great to offer. Often, they are not numbers people and find the financial side of their business challenging and overwhelming, and then there’s all the rules and regulations and HMRC to deal with. My experience working in different types of organisations means I have an in-depth understanding of how businesses operate. I use technology to work efficiently and help clients set up the best financial systems and processes to meet their needs.
I am friendly and approachable and can communicate things clearly in a way people can understand. It’s really important that I build a relationship with my clients and I become their trusted business partner. I’m there to support and nurture business owners as their business grows, and to make sure they have the financial data they need so they can make timely decisions.
