Lisa Collins - DirectorLisa Collins - Director

I qualified as a Chartered Certified Accountant working in a Loughborough practice in 1996. I moved to a large independent practice in Leicester where I lead an audit team, dealing with the accounts and audit of many large companies.

In 2003, after the birth of my son, I decided it was time to use my vast experience and set up my own accountancy practice.
