Partner, Social Purpose and Non Profits

I joined Crowe's Social Purpose and Non Profits team in December 2014 from a Big Four firm, where I led the charity practice. I have worked in the non profit sector for the last 18 years.

In addition to providing audit and assurance services, I provide a range of advisory services. These include assignments from risk and governance reviews to leading internal audit programmes and undertaking grant assurance. I also carry out training for a number of charities on a range of topics relevant to Trustees and management.
