Q:  Why did you choose to go into accountancy?

A:  I chose to go into accountancy as I wanted a good career so I could be an independent woman and not have to rely on anyone else. I do also enjoy working with numbers.

Q:  Why did you choose Ensors?

A:  I chose Ensors as they were keen to invest in young people and help them towards a career in accountancy. They also provide a wide range of experience in all of the different elements of accountancy which was exactly what I was after. I wanted to work for a firm with a good reputation who valued their employees.

Q:  What do you really enjoy about your job?

A:   Helping clients to overcome problems and better their businesses. I also enjoy meeting lots of people and developing good relationships.

Q:   If you had to do something different and money and skill was no object, what would you do?

A:   I would probably be a lady of leisure and travel the world as there are many places I want to see and experience.

Q:   If you could invite any 3 people to dinner who would they be and why?

A:   That’s easy. Audrey Hepburn as she is a symbol of class and elegance. Whitney Houston as she was a fabulous singer and Michelle Obama as she is a strong inspirational woman

Q:  What was your first day at work like? 

A:   Scary, but I soon settled in as everybody at Ensors are extremely friendly and helpful.

Q:   What’s your favourite TV programme?

A:   I do enjoy watching the Real Housewives of Cheshire as I find their lives fascinating. All they seem to do is either shop or get beauty treatments. I sometimes watch the American Real Housewives and they are even more extravagant.
