I am a qualified Chartered Accountant and Chartered Tax Adviser and have recently moved down to Cornwall from Glasgow with my husband, who is a surgeon at the Royal Cornwall Hospital Trust.

Prior to this move, I ran my own accounting practice, which I set up in 2009, aimed at local start-ups and established small businesses. I have a degree in Theology from Cambridge University and qualified with Deloittes, where I worked for 5 years before a spell in industry, including Norwich Union, before setting up my own practice. During my time in practice, I also completed a number of assignments with Grant Thornton.

I enjoy cooking for friends and family, and to work off the calories I am a keen runner and I go to the gym regularly. I also scuba dive with my husband and am looking forward to learning to surf once we have found somewhere permanent to live.  In my free time I also volunteer with the Foodbank in Truro.
