Meet Clissy Funkhouser
I began my practice in 1995 in Berryville, Virginia and ten years later moved the office to O'Sullivan Farms in Charles Town, West Virginia.
The connection with O'Sullivan Farms began years ago when my mother-in-law, Ruth, mentored me in keeping the farm books. My passion for small business was birthed there and now I've come full circle; I'm the farm's CPA. I use what I learn navigating the complex issues of the farm business to guide my clients in their businesses.
As a graduate of the University of Virginia, I earned a Bachelor of Arts with distinction. After attending Shepherd College to take the accounting courses needed to sit for the CPA exam, I passed the grueling 2 ½ day CPA exam on my first sitting. It is required to take a minimum of 40 hours of continuing professional education annually in order to maintain my CPA license. I am licensed to practice in both Virginia and West Virginia.
What I Do
I like the personal interaction with my clients. In my office, every client is important.
I like helping people; I can't fix the whole world's problems, but I can help--just a little--with your taxing ones.
I like the challenge of figuring how best to resolve complex problems. It's like solving an M. C. Escher puzzle.
I like having a barn office where everyone is welcome, my dogs keep us company, and the horses frolic nearby.
