Kara Ryan Haas, CPA, CITP, CFE

Kara Haas learned accounting through a need to keep track of her family of entrepreneurs. After receiving her Master of Science in Accounting from Marquette University and gaining experience in public accounting, she established a firm in 2005.

From 2005 - 2011, her firm evolved to focus on the needs of independent retailers and inventory-centric businesses. As a champion of web-based financial and operational software, she authored several articles to assist CPAs with navigating and implementing SaaS products to better serve clients.

In the years since, while working on larger projects for individual clients and family, she has been quietly following the development of blockchain technology and scant guidance surrounding financial and accounting treatment.

Ms. Haas is excited to return to public accounting as a resource to fellow accountants and tax preparers with clients participating in the crypto community.
