Who we are


Before starting Dovetails in 2012, I spent 15 years working in two medium sized Cheshire accountancy practices, the majority of which were in a client manager role.  As you would expect in 15 years I have seen hundreds of different businesses with different processes, needs and constraints. 

My job is to work with the owners to help make the business work best for them, advising on accounting and record keeping solutions that would not only comply with the necessary reporting requirements, but also in a format that the owners can use and understand, essential for the running of their businesses.

Away from work I enjoy spending time with family and my two young kids, which now seems to mainly involve driving them to where they need to be while they enjoy a busier social life than me. I also love rugby league and enjoy playing for Warrington Wolves PDRL which has given me many great experiences and allowed me to meet many inspirational people. When not being Dad’s Taxi service I also like to try different real ales and cask beers to see what gems I can find.


I have been with the Dovetail team since 2018, I carry out a range of tasks from general accountancy work, through to VAT, Self-Assessment, Corporation Tax and Payroll duties on behalf of our clients. CIS is my primary specialisation, taking complex enquires from our clients and providing guidance where required.  Prior to working with Dovetail, I have worked in a range of different settings and accountancy practices and have over 15 years of experience. I am a fellow member of The Association of Accounting Technicians (FMAAT). Outside of work I have two boys who keep me busy, and I enjoy taking family holidays, especially to Disney, as and when I can.


I’m Julie and I’m currently studying with AAT and recently gained the AATQB qualification, after retraining from my earlier teaching career. My main duties at Dovetail are bookkeeping and producing VAT returns for various clients. 

Outside work, I enjoy travelling and seeing new places, walking my dog and socialising with my husband, friends and family. I love live music so try to see as many singers/bands live as possible, even if they’re just playing at the local pub! Other hobbies include cooking, drawing, painting and various other craft activities, when I have time.


My main duties include producing limited company, sole trader and partnership accounts and also the preparation of VAT returns and bookkeeping.

I have a good knowledge of most cloud based accounting software, mainly Xero and QuickBooks.

Outside of work I enjoy playing golf and football and taking on the boss in Fantasy Premier League!
