About Us

KIRSTY ST JOHN MICB

BOOKKEEPER

Kirsty completed her Bookkeeping training in 2007 whilst on maternity leave from her former job as a Buyer. That experience gives her experience in juggling multiple projects/clients at different stages, whilst managing fast approaching deadlines. For her downtime she’ll normally be found out walking her crazy Cocker Spaniel or lost in Netflix with wine and/or chocolate! She also has the ‘pleasure’ of a teenage son.

Favourite Biscuits: I’m unlikely to say no to many types but I really like Jam Sandwich Creams (like posh Jammy Dodgers) but I do love a crunch cream / custard cream.
