Melisa Galasso, the owner of Galasso Learning Solutions, joined us for this episode of Where Accountants Go, the Accounting Careers Podcast. Many of us have had the thought that we may like to teach, whether it be at a university or privately for companies and continuing education needs, and most of us feel at some level that we would like to help others. Melisa has turned these two passions into a new career for herself, building on her original foundation of being an accountant. Her career started as many do. Melisa was an auditor in the Big 4. However, it wasn’t long and she decided that path wasn’t for her, so she ventured into industry. After trying a few positions outside of public accounting, she still hadn’t quite found her niche, and at the same time she was starting her family. It was at that point that she decided to try teaching… and her passion was found. Fast forward through several positions with progressive responsibility with Becker, plus some additional adjunct professor work, and now she owns her own custom continuing education company, Galasso Learning Solutions. As we also discover, while many CE instructors are frequently one-person shows, Melisa has been able to add a substantial support team as well as contract instructors that shine in areas where she isn’t quite as knowledgeable. All this makes for a much better solution for her customers. I found it inspiring that Melisa so accurately was able to identify what she would enjoy long-term, and it all started from her initial background as an accountant.
