Kate began her accountancy career in 1998 as an Accounts Assistant, after studying Business at college. She has since spent a number of years in financial accounting roles within the industry, gaining valuable experience and knowledge.
In 2008 Kate joined a local Aviation Maintenance company as Financial Controller and became a key member of senior management whilst also overseeing the financial mapping and structure for the installation and subsequent upgrade of a new ERP software system.
Kate joined Sheen Stickland in October 2015 as Finance Manager bringing with her an extensive knowledge of Financial Management & Reporting within various industries.
In February 2019 Kate was promoted to her new role as Finance & Operations Director for Sheen Stickland. As part of the role Kate is responsible for all Internal Finance & Management Reporting along with the day to day running of the business and administration team including IT, HR, Marketing and Facilities.
In her spare time, Kate enjoys spending time with her husband, two young children and dog Chilli. Kate is a keen runner and involves (drags?) her family in this as much as possible - with the aid of bikes, running buggies and dog leads! After completing the London Marathon in 2010 she continues to regularly participate in various races within the Southern region whilst she waits for that elusive London Marathon Ballot place!
Her latest adventure will be the "Run Disneyland Paris 36K Challenge" in September 2019, which unsurprisingly the whole family is looking forward to!
