The Team

Lisa Clarkson

Lisa is the director of the organisation, heavily supported by her team. She prepares the accounts and tax returns and is the main client liaison. She sees herself as a ‘business mum’ to her clients, encouraging and supportive but nagging where necessary!

Lisa started her career in accountancy practice 26 years ago. Prior to this she was a staff nurse. This may seem like quite a dramatic career change but Lisa is of the opinion that numbers behave far better than people do!

Outside of the office, Lisa enjoys reading, drawing and spending time with her partner and two teenage children. She practices tai chi and also attends a weekly dancing class.

Heather Brelsford

Heather is in charge of the payroll department. She has been part of the team for more than 9 years and is very much valued by the team and our payroll clients.

Previously, Heather was in the RAF in administration and has also worked as a GP receptionist. Her organisational skills and attention to detail are just two of the transferrable skills that we have come to appreciate.

Heather spends her spare time with her husband and two teenage children, going for walks and family days out. She also enjoys time with her friends and visiting her parents. When relaxing, she like to read and watch television.

Elliot Collins

Elliot is our full-time trainee, currently studying for his AAT level 4, an professional diploma in accountancy. Elliot is numerate and a quick learner and has rapidly become a valuable member of the accounts production, bookkeeping and payroll team.

Prior to his accountancy studies, Elliot was an A-level student studying Mathematics, Further Mathematics, Physics and History. He was also a volunteer for a local charity.

In his spare time, Elliot enjoys cycling and reading crime thrillers and action/adventure books.  He also has a keen interest in computer gaming and computers in general, including some programming in HTML and JavaScript.

Elliot feels much supported by the team and is looking forward to progressing with his career.
