Solertian Star of the Month: Micheline Boisseau, Tax Credit and Grant Consultant
A versatile fitness enthusiast, Micheline is happiest when she’s out in nature. During her time off, you can find her hiking in the forest, or hitting the slopes on her downhill and cross-country skis. In her ideal world, she dreams of moving to the Laurentians, where she can walk out the door to her favourite activities. She also hopes to learn to play the piano and take up biking and yoga.
While she prefers to give others the spotlight, her commitment to community causes has revealed a person who thrives on connection. Over the past two decades, Micheline has been a valued volunteer for a variety of educational and cross-cultural programs. Here at the office, she prefers to keep a low profile. But even from behind the scenes, she finds it rewarding to see how her work helps to build success, both for the company and her clients.
Known as the “Solertia elder,” she finds young people inspiring and enjoys the opportunity to work with colleagues of all ages. She believes that the best workplaces encourage collaboration across all generations and cultures. As she so wisely puts it: “We aren’t actually all that different. Everywhere you go, you can find the common ground that brings us together.”
Her appreciation for diversity extends into her role as a Tax Credit and Grant Consultant. Throughout her career, she has worked with all kinds of people and companies, from private businesses to not-for-profit organizations. To help her customers obtain the grants they need, Micheline does everything she can to get to know their projects from the inside out. This lets her create applications that stand out from their competitors. And when her grants get her clients’ projects off the ground, that’s the best feeling.
