After 20 fantastic years with Deloitte I retired as an equity tax partner on 31st May 2015. I had a strong desire to do things differently at this this time in my career and to embrace new challenges and opportunities. I am now building a portfolio around "in house" tax positions and NED roles.
I am the Director of Tax for Everton Football Club, a varied and part time role which I am thoroughly enjoying. In addition I am a NED with Kids Allowed, an award winning nursery group based in the north west as well as being the Vice Chair of Governors and Chair of the Finance and General Purposes Committee of Mid Cheshire College.
My professional and executive career was in providing strategic advice to businesses primarily regarding UK and international tax matters for their employees, investigations and transactions. I have led and grown dynamic teams and have extensive experience of dealing with diverse business challenges through disparate economic situations, and have gained extensive commercial perspective and insight.
Throughout my career I have worked extensively with inspirational and outstanding leaders, some of whom were colleagues and others clients, including entrepreneurs and FTSE 100 directors. My sector expertise includes, manufacturing, retail, pharmaceutical, telecoms, consumer, agriculture, education and healthcare.
In 2015 I was named by Cranfield School of Management as one of the "100 Women to Watch" and in 2016 participated in the Deloitte Women on Boards Programme.
I am the author of the book "Childcare Choices and Costs" which was published by Spiramus in May 2015.
