About Michele Winger Medicine Hat and Area Accounting Firm
About Medicine Hat Accountants Michele Winger and her team
I grew up in family of entrepreneurs. Our family business in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan had retail (home entertainment), service (electronic repairs) and wholesale operations as well as a full service gas station. I know from first-hand experience what it is like to schedule and manage staff, prepare the payroll, re-order stock, deal with government forms, manage bank accounts and overdrafts, serve customers and deal with paperwork. My move to Medicine Hat, in 1981, gave me my second exposure to public accounting and triggered my passion for small business accounting, which still continues.
The combination of my keenness for accounting, formal education as a Certified Management Accountant (CMA), being a Chartered Professional Accountant (CPA), growing up in a family business and years of managing my own professional practice, all comes together to allow me to offer unique and practical insights for business owners. At my firm, we are very accessible, friendly, efficient and responsive to client needs and requests. We will get to know you. We will know who you are when you walk in the door.
I work with a three people as my support staff. My accounting technicians have a two-year accounting diploma, extensive real life bookkeeping/accounting experience, or both, plus they receive considerable initial and on-going training here, in this office. They are here full-time, year-round and have a firm understanding of the issues in bookkeeping, payroll remittances, GST and other aspects of accounting and bookkeeping.
As my client, you benefit from my dedication in providing exceptional service as a professional and to keeping current by attending on-going tax and accounting update courses to keep "on top of my game".
I want you to feel comfortable you know what is going on and receive excellent explanations of what we are doing, and why.
I want you to be satisfied your time and money is well spent at my firm.
