Alyssa was born and raised in Wisconsin before moving one state over to attend the University of Minnesota for her undergrad. After discovering a deep love for the Boundary Waters in Northern Minnesota, she majored in Environmental Science and minored in Public Health. After spending many years working for the Campaign to Save the Boundary Waters on their development and communication teams, Alyssa headed West where she found great community while working in the education, youth development, and food justice all across King County. Alyssa is passionate about uplifting her community and is so excited to help support the incredible work that Friends has been doing for 20+ years.
Outside of work, Alyssa loves to hike, read, walk around Seattle’s beautiful parks, and occasionally go on road trips with her friends from college. She is also very passionate about film photography and loves capturing beautiful sceneries and memories.
