Controllers are responsible for the financial management and reporting of the organization. They oversee accounting operations, financial planning, budgeting, and compliance to ensure a company’s financial health and integrity.

About our company

I started this company with my husband and co-founder, Ewan Hay, with two main objectives in mind: 1)  provide our clients with the best possible value-driven resources and 2) build a talented pool of consultants by re-engaging working parents who have left full-time work for a better work-life balance.

We offer tailored consulting and project support, filling any organizational gaps; as well as sustained Interim/Fractional CFO, talent management, and part-time expertise. We strive to ensure clarity and stability in your financial journey.
