"Something’s not worth doing unless someone, somewhere, would much rather you weren’t doing it" - Terry Pratchett
Starting out as an accountant, I self studied towards my first tier of technician exams before I was taken on by a small online firm with a big presence, and a focus on technology. They gave me the opportunity to complete the AAT qualification at the same time as generating some great experience working with SME’s, mostly in the tech industry. Working so closely with business owners has given me a strong ability to put myself in the client’s place. This never fails to aid communication and make for positive working relationships. Having again self studied the ATT qualification; I’ve now taken these solid foundations, and client-focussed ethos, and have been readily applying them to my Tax Senior role here at Elam Wall since November 2017.
Outside of work, I like to socialise and travel as much as possible, thinking nothing of jumping in the car for five hours just to squeeze a road trip into the weekend. I also try to keep fit, going to the gym most days and getting on the yoga mat as often as possible!
