The Person

“I set this business up back in 2007 but only recently felt the time was right to activate it.  In mid-2019 after 25 years working for others, I left my previous working life to start a new chapter in my career. Ekstra Accounting Solutions was reborn in Oct 2019. Why? I have always had a heart for helping, to share my skills, experience and knowledge with others. I now want to channel this into the economy that I live in. Afterall “a rising tide lifts all boats”.  My husband is Scandinavian hence the strange surname and I now live in Belfast Northern Ireland. I look forward to meeting you the reader very soon and hopefully achieving great things together.
