Which three people would you invite to a dinner party?

“Benjamin Franklin, Galileo and Abraham Lincoln”

I joined Forrester Boyd’s Scunthorpe office as a trainee accountant in October 2017.

Previously working in practice at another accountancy firm I brought with me a wealth of knowledge that helped me on my journey to becoming a qualified Chartered Certified Accountant. I qualified in July 2021.

I have a particular interest in personal tax planning and VAT. I work with a variety of clients, preparing accounts and helping with tax savings. In fact, I really enjoy the tax elements of advice within my role. I like to work with clients, carefully planning their tax to help them make significant savings.


I enjoy playing sports in my spare time, specifically football and golf. I also enjoy going hiking and keeping on top of my fitness in the gym.
