Karen Graham B.A. C.A.
“Starting my own practice has given me valuable insight of what it feels like to take a chance and start out in business. I have much more empathy and have been able to give clients real advice from actual experience, which makes all the difference in a great client relationship.”
Karen has been a member of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Scotland since 1993. She trained as a CA with J G Henderson & Co and was with the firm for 13 years.
“I had a fantastic training experience and loved the work. The firm was able to give me experience in a wide variety of businesses, which laid a solid foundation for my career.”
In 2003, Karen became a partner in a 5 partner practice in the Borders and went on to build up further experience with multi franchise car dealerships, construction industry and property rental companies, textile manufacturers, professional partnerships, retail and trades.
Marie is presently studying for ATT tax exams, and joined the firm in 2008. Her managerial background in branches of a national travel agent, followed by three years experience with H M Revenue & Customs has been very valuable in helping the firm’s clients.
