How can I help you?

I am an FCA with over 21 years of experience in audit and assurance, the majority of which has been with Rayner Essex.

As head of the St Albans Audit Team, I look after staff, provide awesome technical support to the partners as well as manage a diverse portfolio of clients across both our offices.

To me, my 20 years’ service at Rayner Essex shows what a great forward thinking place it is to work. As a senior manager I’m hands on in terms of client interaction and pride myself on being the first port of call for a lot of the clients in my portfolio should they have any query, no matter how big or how small.

My portfolio consists of larger incorporated entities, consolidated groups (with overseas subsidiaries) in addition to ad-hoc, one off, special reporting and projects. My aim is to make the complicated simple and ensure that my clients are kept informed of what we’re doing and can have the confidence to concentrate on running their business.

Outside of work, when I’m not accidentally referring to the office as “home”, I like tinkering with electronics, avoiding my children and sitting down a lot.

Whether it’s statutory audit, consolidation or group reporting, or even a systems & processes review to see if your business is as efficient as you’d like it to be, why not contact me for a free initial discussion?


I recently reviewed a client’s costing model in order to streamline his costs and help him redesign his pricing model. We discovered that some of the projects he undertook actually made a loss when more relevant costs were absorbed. This helped the client focus on his cost models rather than simply assuming more sales would equate to more profit.
