Chelsea Schmidt


Chelsea joined the team of CPAs at Nth Degree in January 2019. She is a creative thinker and loves to build personalized tools, processes, and reports that help business owners feel certainty around their finances in a lasting and meaningful way.

Before coming to Nth Degree CPAs, Chelsea worked in a variety of accounting and finance roles. She began as an internal accountant for a small business; subsequently, she worked in multiple positions on the accounting and finance staff of a growing public company; and along the way, she experimented as a freelance accountant, helping out friends in need who were starting their own businesses. In those roles, she has learned that it’s the special projects, cleanup, and fixing unusual problems that make her feel the most fulfilled and happy in her career. Working as a CPA at Nth Degree gives her plenty of opportunity to let out that creative side and help solve the unique challenges that small business owners face.

Chelsea was born in Washington and is originally from Olympia, but moved up to Seattle to get her accounting degree at Seattle University. She fell in love with the city (especially the coffee) and made it her home. Outside of work, Chelsea loves to read, go swing dancing, travel to other countries, and go on road trips with her partner in a camper van.
