Our Team

The Gardner Webb team

Experienced | Skilled | Approachable
We’re not just well-known for accountancy expertise. (We have to be honest here) Our clients love us also because we’re a great bunch of people! We’re a genuine team in every sense. We work together with a sole focus – to support you and your business. We’re diligent, persistent and sometimes quite ruthless, in our determination to make your business a success.


In 2003 left the corporate world behind her and set up Gardner Webb Accounting. Her corporate background served her well over the years – enabling her to approach client issues in an analytical way – giving practical advice that has a measurable impact on her clients’ businesses. She is also one of those rare breeds who likes all things tax and is a chartered tax adviser.

She is your first point of contact for any tax matters and business advisory matters, such as profit improvement, budgeting, forecasting, training, systems consultancy, performance standard setting, etc. Edit holds a degree, is a member of the Chartered Institute of Taxation, a fellow member of the AAT and a member of the ATT.

Edit is married, has a grown son and two (very naughty) cats. She loves Greek food.


Claire trained and worked in an accountancy practice for eight years before being headhunted to take on commercial roles. After 14 years heading up finance teams, Claire has returned to practice.

She is responsible for co-ordinating all your service requirements and is personally responsible for all your compliance matters, such as tax returns, accounts, VAT returns, payroll, etc. Claire is well known for running a happy, but tight ship whilst complying with the numerous different pieces of legislation and achieving all your critical deadlines.

Claire is a fellow member of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants and a member of the AAT.

Claire is married with a teenage son and a dog with boundless energy (and zero obedience). She likes sailing. She loves Italian food and is a traditional G&T girl.


After many years of running her own business, Melinda joined GWA in 2020. Melinda always had a passion about numbers. She holds economic, statistics and accountancy qualifications, including the AAT. She is also a part qualified ACCA.

Melinda is married with a young girl and likes to spend quality time with her family and her four-legged child, Arthur the mini poodle.  She likes Mexican and Italian food. Her favourite drink is coffee – and wine (sometimes).


Vicky joined Gardner Webb Accounting in 2023, having finished her Business Level 3 qualification. From an early age she loved working with numbers – maths being her favourite subject during her academic years. She decided to pursue a career in accounting and she took on an Accounting Apprentice role at Gardner Webb starting her journey towards the AAT qualification.

In her spare time, she enjoys taking long walks in the park, reading self-development books and sketching portraits with captivating detail. She loves coffee and tea, and believes her life wouldn’t function well without it.


After leaving school finishing her A levels in Business and Media, Jenny worked at a variety of places trying to figure out what she suited best from volunteering at age concern to working in the post department for a mortgage company, before finally finding her passion for bookkeeping at Gardner Webb Accounting, with a drive to become a qualified accountant one day.

Jenny loves to have a laugh, watch movies and do anything arts and crafts. Her favourite type of food is Mexican and prefers Dr. Pepper above all other drinks.

Our goal is to help our clients solve their business problems and make their ideas come true.
