Our Management Team

Bonnie Nash
CGA, CPA, CFP, Partner

Bonnie Nash

Bonnie is the founding partner of Nash Giroux, LLP. She obtained her Certified General Accountants designation in 1989 while working as an employee in a public accounting firm. At that firm, she held a senior position and was responsible for reviewing the work of fellow staff members, as well as mentoring them. In 1996, she opened her own practice and quickly expanded operations, eventually becoming an employer. An affiliation with Porter Hetu International gave Bonnie access to mentors, who helped with business expansion and keeping up with new accounting trends and opportunities. She actively participates in committees formed by her group affiliation and currently serves as Chair of the Professional Development Committee. Additionally, she has been an active member of the Certified General Accountants of Alberta, serving as a Practice Reviewer and providing mentoring to new graduates. Bonnie has facilitated seminars on opening a new public accounting practice and has directly mentored individuals in their quest to become eligible to provide those services. Bonnie operated as a sole practitioner in Slave Lake for 16 years before promoting an employee to become a partner to assist with running the accounting practice. She has always strived to be one of the first to embrace new technologies, such as a paperless office, which allowed her the flexibility to travel and add staff without physically being in the office. This approach has facilitated continued growth, resulting in the addition of another partner in 2019 through the purchase of an accounting practice in Morinville. Currently, Bonnie has relocated to Spruce Grove and is focusing on expanding the firm's client base while still participating in day-to-day operations. In her spare time, Bonnie loves spending time with her children, traveling around the globe, and attending CrossFit classes.
