Jenny is a member of the Charted Institute of Management Accountants with 15 years of experience of financial management and planning in the arts, educational and third sectors.

Before joining Counterculture, first as an Associate in 2012 and then as a partner in 2013, she has worked at the Open University, Royal Holloway University, London, National Portrait Gallery, London Remade and London First. Her work has focussed on improving financial understanding of organisations so that operational and strategic decisions are made with a clear understanding of the financial implications. The art of balancing a financial bottom line with wider social and public interests is at the heart of all that she does.

Jenny’s recent work with Counterculture has included business planning at MK Gallery, interim Head of Finance at Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts and consultancy for the National Federation of Women’s Institutes. Jenny also carries out independent examinations of small charity accounts and has experienced firsthand the challenges of running a small community organisation through setting up and running a local youth group.
