10 Questions with... Sammi!
We're really excited to start our new '10 Questions With' series so that you can get to know the team here at Melanie Curtis Accountants better.
Kicking off this series is Sammi!
How long have you been with MCA?
2 years as of the 3rd June!
What is your role at MCA?
What does a typical day in your role look like?
I start the day checking emails, then I chair the team call and allocate work to the team as necessary. For the rest of the day I’m preparing reports, helping clients with ad-hoc queries, reviewing accounts, checking in with the team on tasks that they should be completing, having sign off meetings with clients & looking at and refining processes… and anything else that may come in!
What's your favourite thing about your job?
Dealing with clients and adding value to their businesses where possible. I enjoy helping clients understand their accounts better so they can make changes to reduce tax or manage their business better - particularly giving them an awareness of things like directors loan accounts and how to avoid becoming overdrawn etc.
What do you like doing outside of work?
I enjoy spending time with my children and renovating my new house!
What's one thing that most people don't know about you?
Not a lot as I'm a bit of a sharer... I have a GCSE in Russian (although I do tell people that quite often)!
If you could only eat one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be?
If you could only take 3 things with you to a desert island, what would they be?
My two daughters, Alicia and Poppy and... my Kindle Paperwhite!
What's your favourite TV programme?
Most importantly... coffee or tea?
Tea! I still haven't grown up enough to like coffee.
Hopefully you feel like you know Sammi, MCA's Senior Accountant a bit better now! Come back for our next installment of '10 Questions With...' in a few weeks time to find out more about MCA's newest team member Vicky.
