Karen is our Agricultural Accounts Manager and joined the team in August 2017. Before joining the David Allen team, Karen worked in the accounts department at Castletown Estate in Rockcliffe where she studied and completed her Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT) qualification, of which she is now a fellow member.
Karen went to school in Dublin and after leaving worked as an au-pair in New Jersey in the USA, taking the opportunity to travel around America before coming home to start her career.
Karen takes full responsibility for the development of six members of the agricultural team. She also prepares sole trader, partnership and limited accounts along with VAT returns for a range of different agricultural and rural businesses. A big part of her role here at David Allen is producing financial projections for clients and banks to assist businesses in their growth.
Outside of work any spare time is taken up by her husband and three very busy daughters. As chief taxi driver to two avid football players and one cheerleader, there are always plenty of matches and competitions to attend. When time allows Karen enjoys spending time with friends and travelling home to Ireland.
