I enjoy developing relationships with like-minded entrepreneurial business owners, offering practical advice gained from experience being on the Fortus board, and overseeing our own growth.

With a strong tax background, I’ve worked alongside business owners for over 15 years, enabling me to gain a wealth of knowledge and experience. Having been a part of the leadership team overseeing our own rapid growth, I enjoy sharing first-hand experiences and supporting others on their own journeys.

Outside of work, I’m an Enterprise Adviser to a local school and a Trustee to a charity supporting the low-waged and unwaged. Having two daughters has opened up a new world of Disney Princesses, dance, dolls and dressing up (them not me!). Pilates also plays an important part in my weekly routine (before it became fashionable), as well as boot camp sessions. I also enjoy watching live performances whether it’s sporting, musical or theatre.
