Kadie wanted to be an accountant from a young age but assumed it wouldn’t be for her given her dwindling love of maths at school. So, due to her creative flair, she went on to study photography and graphic design at college instead. While she excelled at it and loved the subject matter, she wasn’t sure she wanted her hobby to become her work and so decided to turn to a more of a corporate career.
In 2004, Kadie joined Equiniti- firstly in a junior operational role but quickly moving up to Service Delivery Manager and then on to more of a regulatory role as a Product Support Specialist. Over the course of her 16 years with the company, the nagging desire to give accounting a try never faded so in 2018 she applied to study for her first two AAT qualifications independently, via Northbrook college. She also found a bookkeeping client that she squeezed in around her work, study and young family. This turned out to be a mutual client of Sytrus, and Zoe and Darcie were immediately impressed with Kadie’s aptitude for the job and how quickly she learned so they were delighted when Kadie showed interest in the trainee position in mid-2020. Since then, Kadie has continued to show she’s a natural at transitioning her previous professional experience into accountancy.
Kadie still enjoys putting her creative skills to work wherever she can- she says they now tend to revolve around her ‘new’ biggest passion- her two young sons with whom she enjoys craft projects as well as family walks and board games. She’s also rather handy and loves getting stuck into home improvements while also somehow finding time to think about continuous self improvement and her studies.
