Senior Accountant (SH)
Serena Hall ACCA is one of our Senior Accountants, supporting our client managers in meeting the needs of JDA’s clients. Serena graduated from the University of Liverpool in 2011 with a 2.1 degree in Accounting and Finance and worked with Jon & Louise for a few years at a previous firm. She did leave due to location but couldn’t bear to be away from them and joined JDA in 2020.
What do you like to do outside of work?
My main priority is my daughter, Layla who has just turned one. She certainly occupies most of my time!
Where is your favourite place?
My favourite place in the world must be Mexico, the sights are stunning, and I loved the activities that you can do.
What is your favourite food and the food you dislike the most?
I am a vegetarian, so that cuts a lot of the options down for me, but I really like Italian food – if there are no mushrooms involved.
Tell me an interesting fact about yourself
I’ve owned a horse called Mally for 13 years, I’ve always been interested in horses.
What did you want to do when you were growing up?
Coincidentally, a teacher when I was in secondary school said that I would be a good accountant, and I’ve strived to become one ever since!
Tell us about your role
Working alongside Claire who is the client manager – helping to do the actual accounts and ensuring that all our clients are happy.
What do you like about working at JDA?
I have worked alongside Jon previously, so I knew what to expect from him, but the team have also been very welcoming, the transition has been so easy and every day is different with our wide range of clients.
