Jeanette Doonan, Irish Tax Institute
What subjects did you take in school and how have these influenced your career path?
I studied in Northern Ireland and sat three ‘A’ levels in english literature, history and religous education. While none of these subjects are directly relevant to law or tax, upon reflection, the skills they helped me to develop have stood me in good stead for working in and studying both.
