Louise Hadlock, CPA
Tax Accountant

Louise is a seasoned CPA with diverse technical and leadership experience and skills in a wide range of accounting systems. She prepares tax documents and other financial reports for clients, and coordinates accounting systems for the firm.

Louise’s accounting career has spanned start-ups to liquidations, cooperatives to regulated banks, medical devices to concrete products. She has spent most of her career in manufacturing. (With one Fortune-500 exception, the manufacturing companies have been locally owned.) She has covered all accounting department duties from audit preparation to taxes.

Louise prides herself on the importance of consistent quality of deliverables, to both internal and external customers. She particularly enjoyed the team-building challenge of designing and implementing an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system, which is a shared database that supports multiple functions.

Louise is a graduate of Whitman College. She is certified in production and inventory management by APICS (American Production and Inventory Control Society). Louise has implementation experience with Oracle, BPCS, and MAPICS, and hands-on experience with Great Plains, SAMM and Exact JobBOSS software.

CPA talents run in the Hadlock family. Louise moved to Port Townsend after 15 years with a co-housing community in Seattle and joined her daughter Sarah here at The Business Guides. Much of her free time is spent establishing her new garden. Louise’s hobbies include the piano, fiber arts, and travel.
