GET TO KNOW OUR TEAM
My name is Lyssa and I am the owner of Virago Accounting. I am a CPA based in Wisconsin. I am a proud alumnus 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 sectors.
I started Virago Accounting, LLC in 2019 in the hopes to do something different than 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.
Megan has been working at VA since August 2020.
She is currently a student at the University of Alaska Fairbanks (my alma mater) and is working towards her degree in Accounting. She plans on sitting for her CPA exam shortly after graduation.
Megan is outdoorsy, she loves hiking fishing, and camping. Her favorite part of accounting is the challenge and the ability to help small businesses grow and be successful.
Megan is incredible and I know you will enjoy working with her.
She is your go-to gal for questions on payroll and outsourced accounting.
Sophia has been with VA since November 2020.
She is currently a student at Kansas State University working on her Masters in Accountancy, with a focus on public taxation. She will sit for her CPA exam after earning her Master's degree.
Sophia loves knitting and has been doing it since she was seven! Her favorite part of accounting is tax. This is why she will be a big part of making tax season run smoothly this year.
Sophia is amazing and I know you will enjoy working with her.

She prides herself in her ability to coordinate and schedule to ensure her teammates and clients are set up for success.
Katy is a great fit for the Virago team as she is enthusiastically supportive of sustainable practices and taking steps to make the world a better place.
In her spare time, you can find Katy hiking her favorite trails, spending quality time with her family, or crafting an oat milk latte.
