Hi there, it’s Susie! πŸ“ˆπŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸ’»πŸ’›

I am a creative finance person. Or… I am a finance person who’s creative. Basically, I am the missing link between creative people and accounting!

I believe that financial literacy will set your creativity free. With me, you can learn to take sound financial decisions for yourself and your business, instead of curling up into a ball whenever money enters the room.

I have 15 years of experience in finance departments and senior teams in theatres and charities, and have in-depth and applied knowledge about finance for artists and creatives, whether they are self-employed, or run a small company.

As your Finance Fairy Godmother πŸ’« I will melt your money-related anxiety away and help you make friends with money (no need to be back by midnight).

I USED TO BE A DANCER πŸ’ƒπŸ»

My first job was in the contemporary dance company I trained with. It was a wonderful experience, but I soon realised that I was much more in my element behind the scenes rather than on stage!

I SOMETIMES LIVE IN A VAN 🚐

My husband and I bought our motorhome in 2022 (after carefully budgeting and saving for it for a year!), and we spend a few months per year living in it. You can follow me on the ‘gram for some finance and vanlife content!

I HAVE A DOG CALLED TANGO πŸ•

Tango is the best of creatures. We got him in 2020 and I don’t even remember how life was before him. He is active, smart, loves chewing toys, and chicken!

I HAVE (TOO) MANY HOBBIES! πŸ’πŸ»β€β™€οΈ

I love hobbies! I enjoy learning new skills and faffing about with creative stuff. My hobbies are: writing, playing the ukulele, cross-stitching, drawing, cooking & baking, watching feel-good shows over and over again, and annoying people with my friendship. If I had more time, I’d like to learn the piano, write some more, and learn swing dance!
