Karen specialises in all aspects relating to the firm’s varied and extensive corporate client base, from the relatively small owner managed to the larger more complex corporate entities. She works closely with her clients in supervising their routine accounts preparation and audit and corporate taxation matters. She is the firm’s senior statutory auditor and her audit team also looks after statutory and non-statutory audits and regulated client compliance work such as solicitors, pension schemes and our clients within the financial services sector. She also advises landed estates and trusts on all matters relating to accounting and tax.
Karen has a Zoology degree from Liverpool University, graduating in 1994. She qualified as a Chartered Accountant in 1998 at Geens and became the firm’s first female partner in 2003.
In her spare time she rides horses to a competitive standard but is frequently found acting as groom to her two daughters in their equine pursuits from their home in Leek. She has organised all Geens’ charity challenges and hopes to do more.
