Hayleigh Lima

Staff Accountant

Since joining the Edwards & Associates team in 2023, Hayleigh has become a valued member of the staff accountant team. Her responsibilities include entering credit card and bank statements, performing reconciliations, adjusting journal entries, preparing financial statements, organizing and saving data requests, and maintaining effective communication with the team. Hayleigh originally wanted to pursue a career in the medical field, so providing accounting services to dental practices is a match made in heaven!  

Before joining our team, Hayleigh gained experience at Goldman Sachs, where she served as an Internal Audit Analyst, and Baker Tilly, where she worked as an Accounting Assistant. Hayleigh holds a B.S. in Accounting from the University of Texas at Dallas. 

Outside of work, Hayleigh is an avid runner and yoga enthusiast. When it’s time to wind down, she enjoys reading and spending time with friends and family. Originally from Plano, TX, Hayleigh now resides in Dallas where she volunteers at the Second Chance SPCA animal shelter.

Fun Facts:

  • Hayleigh is left-handed but plays sports right-handed. She used both hands, however, to play volleyball from elementary school through high school. 
  • While she admits to loving the unique color combination of yellow and purple, Hayleigh does not mention the LA Lakers or Minnesota Vikings. 
  • Growing up, Hayleigh loved math class…almost as much as she loved recess!  
  • Hayleigh is admittedly a dog person but also can’t resist the charm of cats.  
  • With its epic sunsets, diverse ecosystems, and endless recreation, visiting Hawaii is at the top of Hayleigh’s bucket list!
