Schneider & Shilling, CPAs
Melody has a passion for accounting which finds participation in a diversity of professional activities. She is a founding member of Schneider and Shilling CPAs, a small firm in Fairbanks, Alaska, where she enjoys winters at an invigorating 50 degrees below zero. She is especially energetic with the care she gives closely-held businesses and non-profit entities. Her clients love her the way they would a country doctor who knows the family and has earned the trust one only gains by a clear integrity to the health and well-being of her clients. She knows that good accounting means being actively engaged in the well-being of the community, and acts in this knowledge from a place of true concern rather than mere duty.
Melody is a past President of the Alaska Society of CPAs, and currently serves as Liaison to the Alaska Board of Public Accountancy on behalf of the Society. She continues to serve in community-centered organizations as a board member for the United Way of the Tanana Valley, the Fairbanks Concert Association, the Fairbanks Sunriser’s Rotary, and the University of Alaska Foundation.
