My name is Lyssa and I am the owner of Virago Accounting. I am a CPA based in Wisconsin. I am a proud alumni of the University of Alaska, Fairbanks, where I attended while my husband was stationed at Ft. Wainwright, AK.
I have been working in the accounting field for 17 years, starting my career bookkeeping for a family owned business in California. Since then I have worked in several states in the public and private sector.
I started Virago Accounting, LLC in 2019 in the hopes to do something different then what I had previously seen in my field. My goals are to not only provide outstanding services to clients, but also to educate them so that they are armed with the information they need to make the most important business decisions and grow their business.
