Meet Michelle Morrison
Bookkeeper/Consultant, Bachelor of Business, Certified Bookkeeper
My journey to become a bookkeeper began 24 years ago in my first job as an assistant accountant at Golden Bay Cement. From here I travelled overseas gaining experience across multiple industries and roles within accounting and systems. Back home in New Zealand I was employed by Manukau City Council in the Finance department and had the opportunity of being part of a team to implement PeopleSoft Financials within an organisation wide business transformation project. In 2010 I also had the opportunity to be part of the amalgamation of Auckland Council which allowed me to peruse my passion in the systems and accounting space.
I am a certified member of the Institute of Certified Bookkeepers and have built strong relationships with Accountants and Tax Agents. Before taking on bookkeeping, I was an ACA member with Chartered Accountants Australia & New Zealand which was a great way to build networks and gain technical knowledge.
Bookkeeping has allowed me to be there for my family so I understand the pressures of running my own business while balancing family life.
Running, hockey, golf, waterskiing and fishing are amongst my favourite pastimes and provide both enjoyment with my family and a release from life's daily pressures. I love my new home in Mangawhai and enjoy volunteering at the Mangawhai Information Centre administering their FaceBook page and helping to organise community events. I am also treasurer for Otamatea High School.
I have formed Blue Wave Solutions to offer you a personalised, friendly bookkeeping service covering all aspects of accounts processing including system advisory and business planning.

"Michelle has taken me from a place where I had no idea who I had to pay and when, and who owed me to being comfortable my accounts are up to date. Michelle has given me the tools to make these decisions and is always on hand to answer queries.“
