Jess walked through the doors of the Epplett & Co office in 2018 as a student undertaking her Industry Based Learning Project as her final requirement to obtain her Bachelor of Business studies, majoring in Accounting. She investigated the feasibility of setting up a Not for Profit Hub. Jess enjoyed her time at the Epplett & Co office so much that she never left and has now started a “paid” role as an Accountant with us.
Jess is excited to learn all aspects of accounting, and plans to begin her Chartered Accountancy qualification in early 2019. As a result of her experience with her project, she has developed a greater passion for Not for Profit organisations and new businesses. Jess has been involved in the bookkeeping and administration for the SPCA for a number of years.
Jess was born in South Africa, but proudly calls herself a Kiwi now. She enjoys spending time with her young son, partner and family, organising her house and going to the beach.
