I have worked in various Accountancy Sector for 34 years during which I briefly touched on Manufacturing and audits before I found my true vocation which was dealing with the Smaller Organisations that are socially aware where I feel that I can get to know the people and business more intimately since there are usually smaller teams working in these type of businesses.
When I then had the good fortune to work within an Accountancy Practice that specialised in Charities and Voluntary Sector, I found my home.
I like to make a difference to all of the organisations that I work with, however, I feel that when I work with those who are benefiting others that feeling of making a difference is intensified.
I am originally from Paisley in Scotland, which is where I studied for my BA in Accountancy at Glasgow Caledonian University.
I have known since quite a young age that I wanted to work with numbers as they have always fascinated me.
Accountancy has given me the opportunity to combine my 3 devotions: Numbers, people, and making a difference.
