Congratulations to Gabrielle Vacon for winning the April Nauta Award and being named Telfer CO-OP student of the year.

When doing her placement with BDO Canada, Gabrielle Vachon worked on a number of accounting, tax and certification projects. She also dealt with numerous clients during the course of her work at BDO. Gabrielle was given responsibility for the Ottawa East region, a challenge she found quite interesting. Her supervisor described her as someone able to work very well not only on her own but also as part of a team. She gained experience analyzing various types of information, an important skill accountants must possess. Gabrielle is an employee who believes a great deal in her work in accounting and will complete her certification requirements.
