Katie was made a principal of the practice in 2012 and has been with Slade and Cooper since January 2004 when she started as a trainee. She qualified as an accountant through ACCA in 2007. Katie is a Fellow of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants and has gained the Diploma in Charity Accounting. She is a member of the ICAEW special interest group on Charities and the Voluntary Sector and Audit & Assurance faculty.
Katie has experience of both working and volunteering for charities and community groups as well as being self-employed. She originally heard of Slade and Cooper from two members of a bike co-op whilst cycling through the Cheshire countryside, who said “they are accountants but they’re very nice”. Katie prides herself on the fact that she is one of the few ACCA qualified accountants that also has a degree in acting and a City and Guilds in specialist decorative finishes.
Working for Slade & Cooper has given me the opportunity to work and develop within a supportive environment where people respect the diverse nature of experience both throughout our clients and within the firm.
Katie currently volunteers for a number of local groups and is a trustee of a regional arts charity. She enjoys the outdoors and off road and distance running.
