About

I joined Menzies from University in 2014 and qualified as an ACA in 2017. I was lucky enough to be seconded to Sydney, Australia for 3 months shortly after as part of an HLB network programme.

I left the firm temporarily to run a number of bars, restaurants & a nightclub in South London, before returning in 2021. I am part of the Hospitality & Leisure specialist team and aim to bring my passion and understanding of the industry to my role, having been deeply involved throughout the pandemic.

I am now a relationship manager within the Solent Audit team and help to support my clients with statutory audit & accounts services as well as drawing upon the expertise of others around the firm to ensure we deliver high value outcomes to clients. I aim to fully understand the businesses I work with & challenges they face and enjoy building long-term relationships with clients.

Personal

First job:

Being the world’s worst food waiter in a local gastro pub at 16. Every order was mis-placed or spilled and I couldn’t even operate the glass washer without burning myself or those around me. I didn’t see the second week! It’s a wonder the hospitality industry has been so kind to me since.

Favourite hobby:

I’m a gamer at heart and enjoy nothing more than sitting down with some friends online to smash some buttons at the end of a busy day. That or playing pool at a good sports bar.
