About Me

As the Chief Operating Officer of Grant Thornton's Not for Profit group I work across all types of not for profit organisation.  I also lead the housing part of our wider not for profit group.

Immersing myself in the housing sector means I am an active member of the Housing SORP Committee, ICAEW's housing technical subcommittee and also the HCA special advisers' panel, acting as a sounding board on sector issues and hot topics.

I enjoy leading our national housing team, including reflecting on the debate of emerging areas of accounting practice. I also lead on our commentary on governance in the not for profit sector. 

My real passion is working with clients in the not-for-profit space – particularly at the governance level – to enable them to meet their objectives and bring benefits to wider society.

I am also a qualified coach; I'm dedicated to finding opportunities to enable the development and learning of myself and others. Learning and curiosity are one of my core values. I am also qualified as a neuro-linguistic programming practitioner with a future ambition to complete a masters in psychology.

Outside of work, I enjoy being on the other side of the governance table. I was co-opted to a university audit committee for a full term of eight years and am now a member of a small housing board where I am also Chair of the assurance committee. I spend my weekends running slowly and battling with my garden.
