Alyssa is a southwest person at heart, having spent most of her life in New Mexico, Arizona, and Colorado. She believes that the hotter the better, both with weather temps and spicy food (New Mexican green chile is her favorite). She has a B.S. in Parks and Recreation Management and has a varied career history including backpack guide and baker. However, Alyssa has found that she really likes the office life and SoBo is a great fit. When not at work, Alyssa enjoys growing veggies, taking her pup on a hike, animal rescue work, and roller skating around town.
