What do you do at Dafferns?
As a Corporate Reporting Senior, I am involved in the whole audit cycle, from the planning stage through to completion, drafting statutory accounts and ensuring compliance, identifying any significant matters or risk areas and preparing the audit file ready for manager and partner review.
My role varies between a range of clients, from corporate, charity and solicitor backgrounds.
I also support my more junior colleagues in developing their skills and knowledge to pay forward the support I have received.

What are your hobbies and interests?
I enjoy travelling; seeing new places and trying different cuisines.
Thanks a latte to my time at Starbucks as a Barista which has brewed my interest in caffeine, I love to chai and find independent cafes.
Staying active is important to me; yoga, netball, gym and golf are my favourite forms of exercise.
Part of the Fundraising Team for Myton Hospice and volunteered at my local Cancer Research shop.

Fun fact
On the driving range, I can hit a golf ball 200 yards.
I once sang at Birmingham Hippodrome in front of a full audience.
I can touch my nose with my toe.
