I was raised in Abram, number 3 of 4 daughters. I grew up in a busy, loud, loving (mostly! Ha-ha) home.
I found my place in the home as the one who usually had her nose in a book, always interested in learning something new! I always loved creating something and helped my sisters to earn pocket money creating beautiful perfumes using petals from my Dad’s roses and selling it door to door!! I looked after the books!
At school, my passions were Maths, French & all the Creative Arts…
I went to college to study French & German A level, but I couldn’t stick at it and eventually after much soul searching (aged 16!) I decided to leave academic studying alone for a while and instead turn my attentions to learning everything about my family business, packing clothing and footwear to specification for major Mail Order & High Street stores.
I started in the company at the bottom and worked my way up the ranks, gaining a strong understanding of every role on my way. It was during my time in the family business that my passion for office work & numbers came alive again, leading to going back to college and studying AAT to technician level. My work as finance manager benefitted from this!
I applied for an Accounts Assistant position at Aspire Accounts after my family business ceased trading, and I’m thrilled that I got the job!
Working in the team at Aspire is giving me a great opportunity to really focus on the work that I love doing! It’s so satisfactory to untangle, what can sometimes just look like a mass of paper and figures, into tangible information that will help a client to see how well their business is performing, and make decisions on how to drive it forward.
That is what Aspire Accounts does; we present the information clearly and concisely. I’m proud to be part of a team that is truly focussed on helping their clients. It fits in with everything I learned from growing up in a family business and having been part of a family business ensures I understand the struggles involved with running your business and your books!!
Outside of work I have a few hobbies that keep me busy! I love baking & cooking delicious creations! I enjoy crocheting, reading & listening to a huge array of books, getting outside for a big walk, followed, if lucky, by a pub!
I keep my spiritual side happy with yoga & meditation and long chats putting the world to rights with my lovely bunch of friends and family.
