Our continued growth across the region provides more opportunities for our team, and we look forward to supporting clients old and new in the near future.”
Sarah is a practising Chartered Accountant and one of the first Chartered Accountants in Wales to hold the ICAEW Diploma in Charity Accounting (DChA).
