Michelle Bouchard , CPA, CA
“A love for numbers and problem-solving led me to a career in public accounting but getting to work with great staff and clients has kept me here.”
After working for three summers at an accounting firm in my northern hometown of Cochrane, Ontario, I was sure that public accounting was the place for me. I enjoyed the challenge of the actual accounting and tax work but loved the opportunity to meet clients from a variety of industries, including some audits of hospitals and school boards in very remote, northern communities. I then landed my first co-op placement with Hendry Warren LLP and I never left! It immediately felt like home and I have had endless opportunities to expand my knowledge of assurance and taxation while developing long-lasting connections with clients along the way.
My passion is helping entrepreneurs and new business owners navigate their first few months, years, and major milestones.
I am active in the community and have worked with great organizations like the Kiwanis Club and the Heron Emergency Food Centre. I am currently the Vice Chair and Treasurer of Roger Neilson House.
Michelle joined HWLLP in 2012 as a co-op student from the University of Ottawa and was hired on full-time in 2014. She is a member of CPA Canada and CPA Ontario after obtaining her designation in 2016. Michelle became a Partner at the firm in 2023.
