Practical, Interactive Learning for the CPA Professional
Continuing education for CPAs should be impactful, relevant, and engaging, so using our proven Galasso Learning Solutions (GLS) process, I am committed to providing Continuing Professional Education (CPE) to firms and entities that fulfill real educational requirements for growth and excellence — not just for the sake of compliance.
As Founder and CEO of GLS, I design and facilitate courses in advanced technical accounting and auditing topics. Since GLS values a commitment to excellence in CPE, I closely monitor regulatory bodies for changes in auditing and accounting guidance and serve as a subject matter expert in implementing the updated guidance.
I’m driven by clients who are motivated to invest in high-quality custom training for their members. As my training practice continues to grow through in-person instruction, live webinars, and on-demand replays, so grows my commitment to the core values that set apart GLS in the first place.
GLS has set out to be a positive force in the accounting profession by empowering other CPAs with quality continuing education and through servant leadership in support of an ever-changing profession.

This was undoubtedly one of the best online webinar sessions I have attended so far. Full of amazing learning and engaging at the same time. Melisa is an amazing presenter and I want to come back again to attend more of her classes.

Melisa was very knowledgeable and helpful, and very interested in the topic. I learned numerous new concepts today which help me further appreciate the differences between NFP and other entities. Great job! Also, he reiterated if someone has future questions regarding NFP, he is more than happy to serve as a resource and encouraged folks to contact him

Educational detailed informational presentation explained by a knowledgable presenter. I’ve learned enough to get started with ACS 606 to go further with the understanding thank you Melisa.
