About me

I am an Qualified ACA accountant based in West London, currently working for Coca-Cola European Partners within the financial reporting team. I studied an Economics degree  and I have 8 years of accountancy, audit and finance work experience, starting at PwC in 2012, where I worked for 5 years, before moving to Coca-Cola. I qualified as an ACA chartered accountant in September 2015. 

My responsibilities and strengths include; 

 - Technical Accounting (IFRS, US GAAP)

 - Internal and external stakeholder management

 - Project management, and the management of teams

 - Macro economics

Outside of my professional experience, I have been volunteering with Age UK as a befriending Volunteer for 1 year. This involves spending time each week with an elderly gentleman who is otherwise housebound, to keep him company. More recently, this has also involved shopping on behalf of the elderly, who are currently self-isolating.

What am I looking for

I would like to take on a volunteering role which leverages my skill-set. As a finance professional, I would like to utilise the experience I have gained to provide assistance, guidance and oversight to benefit a charitable cause. I primarily see this as a potential member of a Board of Trustees, however I am open-minded to wider opportunities.
