I am a commercial property accountant by trade. I started in property in 1986 and loved learning about commercial buildings and the technical aspects of the accounting. I have worked for myself for over 20 years now, which I have loved even more! I always wanted to have my own business, since I was little, playing banks and offices. My father was a huge influence on me for business. I always admired that he was a self-taught engineer, who supported a home, wife and three children. If he could do it, so could I!
I was lucky that I got into a niche market and loved working hard for my bosses. A great many of them became mentors to me. I bought my first house at the age of 22, which was a huge thing in our family. I took just 5 days holiday for maternity leave, but was also very lucky that my property bosses let me bring my daughter with me to work in the holidays. It was important for me, that she saw how Mum earnt her money, especially as I was a single Mum for a few years. Our children need good role models growing up.
I love empowering others and have always taken chances. I just must be one of those types! I’m not a typical accountant and this is not a typical serviced office. It’s a vibrant space with lots of energy. I love that all the companies here look out for business for each other – who wouldn’t want to work in an environment like that? I hope you will come and give us a try!
