Growing a business is exciting! And it’s in those acceleration stages where I love to work with founder CEOs to take their business to the next level.
I have a personal love of driving entrepreneur success because early in my career I realised there was a need for founders to have access to good commercial and strategic financial support. Often the health and hygiene compliance work was sorted and they had the clever tax advisors involved, but the missing piece of the puzzle was the partnering support to help the business really grow.
I founded Lantern Partners with the vision of being that partner. Our specialty is working with start-ups and scale-ups to understand their financials, offering strategic and commercial finance advice, and providing hands-on support to ensure they achieve their goals. And every day I am energised by the different businesses we get to work with, partnering with founders to get the best outcomes for them, knowing it is never a one-size fits all approach.
I'm also a mum of two girls and was just voted one of the Top 50 Women in Accounting. I'm committed to promoting diversity within the industry.
When I set up Lantern Partners 10 years ago it was partly through a desire to create a job that worked for my life.
I wanted a job with purpose and one which didn’t involve a 60 hour week (at least not every week!). And in creating that for myself I’ve managed to create an environment where the whole team at Lantern Partners is able to work both flexibly and purposefully and of that I’m really proud.
There is a massive untapped talent pool of ambitious, intelligent, creative women who are being underserved in the corporate world and we are all poorer for it. I am a proud mentor with Worldwide Sheroes and Rare Inspiring Birds

Recently I have been named one of the top 50 women in accounting in 2021 by Ignition, and a finalist for CFO of the year 2022.
I have had over ten years of experience within my own business, with a rich career within other organisations prior to this. I am incredibly passionate about using my voice and my personal stories to support women in my industry, and support individuals moving from corporate roles into their consulting dream. I love being able to provide clarity around business and finance topics, and demystifying issues that have often been made to feel very tightly held and previously “exclusive.”
I hate the idea of people feeling “stuck” whether professionally or in business when information i share could unlock that I was asked recently how i thought i could best support women in the industry and i said, by being visible and by using my voice and sharing my stories.
