From preparing annual accounts and taxation compliance, to helping prepare cash flow and budgets for finance and business requirements, Nicola has been there to help.  This desire for her clients to grow, and the expertise she gained saw her quickly progress from graduate to Partner where she is now responsible for overseeing the work of our Highbrook accounting team, as well as developing her own client relationships.

During her time at RSM, Nicola has become a specialist in assisting start-up child care centres, working with manufacturing companies and cash flow and budgeting services.  Nicola has a passion for understanding the numbers and how to get to there, including sorting out problems and coming up with solutions to take the worry away from her clients.

With a strong desire to assist clients in need of instant solutions, Nicola is ready to take on the challenge of helping any client (new or old) who approaches her.
