Jenny moved down to the West Country from Oxford in 1997, having married a Somerset flower farmer. She graduated from the Royal Agricultural College, Cirencester with an HND in Agriculture and a broad range of practical experience with dairy, beef, sheep and arable. After college Jenny worked on a pedigree Jersey dairy farm in New Zealand and a beef and arable farm in Canada. Upon her return to the UK she made the move into accountancy and qualified as a Chartered Accountant in the West Oxfordshire office of a national firm, specialising in rural businesses.

Having made the move to Somerset, Jenny joined the farming department of a regional firm in 1997 and, after a break to have her two sons, remained with the same firm until January 2020.

When not working Jenny is often to be found pitch-side supporting either her boys or Exeter Chiefs or, when she gets some time to herself, exploring her family history.

Jenny is passionate about farming and loves being able to use her knowledge and professional experience to help farming families with their day to day financial and tax needs.
