AV Financial celebrated 20 years of business on Sept. 14 with an open house at their office on Johnston. Owner Aaron Vissia and his wife Serena visited with clients and staff for the afternoon. A slide show of the business over 20 years was entertaining.  Vissia started the business in his home. He expanded his office space two years ago and now offers a range of financial services and professionals offering bookkeeping and accounting, taxes, insurance, pensions and investing. Vissia is a certified financial planner who has continued to upgrade his education, earning the designation of certified employee benefit specialist in 2014.

This year, Vissia rebranded the business as AV Financial with a new look and new website.
