Jessica Scheidat

SENIOR ACCOUNTANT

I grew up in Jindera NSW and at the age of 20 I moved to Sydney to attend Macquarie University where I graduated in 2010 with a Bachelor of Commerce - Accounting. I started with a Business Services firm in North Sydney where I worked for four years and completed my diploma of Chartered Accounting. I then went on to work for a CA firm in the Sydney CBD where I specialised in business services and management reporting. In 2016 I moved back to the Albury area to be closer to family where I started working with a local firm. In 2019 I joined the HA Accounting team as a Senior Accountant with over 8 year experience. My passion is working with small to medium-sized businesses to help them achieve their goals and grow their business. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family, including my 100 pound Bull Mastiff fur baby, working in my garden and also visiting the local wineries and eateries.
