We’re running a short series of interviews about our team members to help you get to know us better. Here is more about Sabina Reed
1 What do you do?
As Holy Brook’s co-ordinator I arrange our quarterly meet ups, organise our systems, assist with bookkeeping and any other ad-hoc tasks.
We also have several bookkeeping clients that I work for as part of our finance team.
I’m currently ensuring Holy Brook is compliant under the new Data Protection Regulations that will come into effect from May this year.
2. Why are you a Holy Brook Associate?
I really enjoy working as part of a team with such a wide skill set. When we all come together we look at things from a different perspective giving new dimension to scenarios. It enables us to work with a wider range of clients on a variety of projects.
3. What do you like most about working/living in and around Reading?
I love the links Reading has to the rest of the south, you are a short journey from the capital or an hour or so drive to the coast with so much lovely countryside on our doorstep to explore. I think it is an ideal location for business
4. Who or what would be your ideal client or project?
I enjoy doing a wide variety of tasks and learning new things, so my ideal client or project would be a small business or start-up. I enjoy helping to put processes in place to get finances in order making it easier for business’ as they grow and establish
5. What are your favourite things to do outside working with Holy Brook?
Things I love to do when not working include singing in a choir, gardening, exercising: Zumba, swimming, walking, cycling, spending time with family and friends, making things: from knitting and sewing, card making to making silver jewellery. I also enjoy cooking and baking. I’ve recently signed up with Free Cakes for Kids Reading. Free Cakes for Kids Reading is a community service to families who find it difficult to provide a birthday cake for their child
