After graduating with a dual honours degree in Law and Business, Dawn moved back to the West Country to take up a training contract with one of the Big 4 accountancy firms where she qualified as a Chartered Tax Advisor. She went on to qualify as a Fellow of the Institute of Financial Accountants while managing her own practice in Exeter.
She joined Bush & Co as Head of Tax in 2016 and manages a portfolio of high net worth individuals, trusts and small sole trade businesses.
