Experience/specialisms:
Hazel graduated from the University of Southampton with a BSc in Mathematics and qualified as an accountant in 2000.

Her first post graduate experience was with a firm of accountants based in Kingston-upon-Thames, where Hazel gained valuable experience in looking after the needs of a wide variety of clients in the commercial SME sector, before moving across to Kingston Smith, a ‘top twenty’ ranked firm of accountants, based at their office in Redhill. It was during this period that Hazel began to specialise in the Charitable and Not-For-Profit sector, progressing to become Audit Manager within that firm.

In 2004, Hazel joined Tudor John, taking over responsibility for the majority of the firm’s larger charity sector clients and is now the lead partner for this specialist sector.

Hazel was awarded the ICAEW Diploma in Charity Accounting (DChA) in 2009, designed specifically for accountants working in, or directly with, the charity sector. Hazel has since extended the reach of Tudor John's charity client base, which now covers in excess of 50 charity and not-for-profit entities.

In addition to her clients in the charity sector, Hazel also maintains a relationship with a portfolio of private sector clients. This combined sector experience has proved invaluable in enabling Hazel to provide her charity clients with fully rounded, more commercially focused, advice and guidance.
