“MOCPA is a vital aspect of my professional development, providing opportunities for engagement, learning, and giving back. Being part of MOCPA has connected me with CPAs across the state, who motivate and challenge me. The many experiences and relationships cultivated through MOCPA inspire me to support the community, encourage the highest level of client service, and influence the development and reputation of our industry.”

Michelle Schwerin, CPA, JD, member since 2015
Shareholder, Capes Sokol

"MOCPA is awesome! MOCPA has been very important in my professional development and growth. From the first MOCPA event I attended, a St. Louis Chapter Kickoff party, I have grown leaps and bounds! I have had the opportunity to be Chair of both the Community Outreach Taskforce and St. Louis Chapter. I’m also honored to serve as a Board member. These positions allowed me to hone my leadership and management skills, which I am able to use in key areas at my firm and with clients. Additionally, through my involvement with MOCPA, I have developed phenomenal relationships with great people. Come to an upcoming MOCPA event and see for yourself!"
