After graduating with a first class honours degree at Edinburgh University, Sophie qualified as a chartered accountant with KPMG, spending time in their Owner Managed Business and Corporate Tax divisions. She completed an MBA at the University of Oxford and subsequently held senior finance roles within fast-growing entrepreneurial companies before returning to practice. Her experience from both sides of the desk makes her ideally placed to advise ambitious businesses on growth and preparation for sale. Sophie also has wide personal tax and tax planning experience and is looking forward to focusing on these areas in her role with Ryecroft Glenton.
Sophie enjoys anything to do with horses and loves riding with friends. She has recently started dog agility with her Hearing Dog, Hamish, who is too clever by half and quick to point out his handler’s many errors. Much of her remaining time is spent, with her husband Andrew, as taxi driver to their teenage children and spectating by cold hockey pitches and even colder windsurfing reservoirs.
