Lea lives in the Borders and is active in rural life.  This is especially relevant because of her involvement in various equestrian activities which she does in her spare time.

Her family is also involved in property, construction and farming business and therefore she has first hand experience of family business dynamics  which is a real asset to her clients.

Lea is one of the leading Equestrian specialist accountants in Scotland due to her credentials in the equestrian sector in addition to accountancy.

What Our Clients Say...

I was referred to Johnston Smillie by a family friend when I was starting my own company. The process of opening my own business was stressful at times due to a lot of requirements that I did not understand. Johnston Smillie were absolutely fantastic in not only helping me to understand everything but also making me feel very comfortable in the process. I now know that I have a partner I can trust to keep me right which allows me to get on with business. I strongly recommend the services they have to offer!
