Carly is self-motivated, determined and has a meticulous approach to work. She takes pride in the advice she provides when helping clients achieve their goals and her reputation is second to none.

Throughout her 13 year local authority career, Carly climbed to more senior heights and worked in several teams from education to adult social care, technical accounts and support services like treasury, VAT and charity accounting.
