Jessica started her professional life as an accountant for a small business based in Ocean Grove whilst completing her accounting degree here at Geelong Deakin University. This provided a great insight to running a small business as well as training and experience while studying. She joined the team at Scotts in 2005 after finishing her degree. She primarily works with business clients, managing and looking after all the needs of her portfolio of clients, including their annual tax compliance, tax planning, business development such as business plans and day to day queries. As well as her desire and commitment to helping her business clients she is also passionate about all aspects of property and has helped many of her clients go through the process of purchasing their first investment property.
Jessica describes the best part about working with Scotts is, “I love what I do, it’s a real part of my life. We have a great team and a great culture, there’s always someone to run ideas and questions by and to have a laugh with.” Jessica loves to read, “I literally have a book glued to my hand when at home!” she says. She also loves hiking and bush walking, and supporting her beloved Geelong Cats.
