Laura’s strategic approach will make sure you’ve got a solid foundation in place to nurture and grow your business.

With 16 years experience and full CIPFA accreditation, Laura has been responsible for the accounts of a £4.1billion Pension Fund and has held roles as Head of Income and Banking, Project Accountant as well as a number of finance roles in the Public Sector.

“With so many things to think about when you’re running your own business it’s really important to feel like you’ve got someone looking out for you.” says Laura. “Making sure that all your accountancy needs are met – proactively, reliably and diligently – is my main priority, but I also pride myself on being a friendly face who is happy to share all the tips and tricks I’ve learned over the years to help make your business a success”.

Laura has set up and supported a very successful construction company in partnership with her husband and their business partner.
