Louise is a Chartered Management Accountant and the real life person behind The Happy Accountant.

Louise graduated from University with a dgree in Mathematics. Since then, she has worked in all manner of accounting and finance roles, starting in accounts clerk roles, working upwards and moving into financial management and budgeting.  She has worked for small businesses, start ups and some global brands and more recently in the public sector. During that time, she’s seen some really good accounting systems and some terrifyingly bad ones, too.

Unlike most accountants in practice, Louise has worked in businesses not external to them.

Since 2007, Louise has been using her expertise to help a variety of clients with all aspects of their accounts and systems, through her company, Figurate Ltd.

Louise lives in Northampton with her husband and children.  She blogs occasionally and you can also follow her frequent twitters.

You can read her professional profile on Linked In, where she will also be happy to connect with readers of this blog.
