Alyssa’s passion for giving back to the community through non-profit work started as a student worker at the University of Alaska Foundation. This first role sparked a desire to dedicate her professional life to supporting the work of non-profit organizations. Following her time at the Foundation, she went on to spend 6 amazing years connecting Alaskans with the world at the Alaska World Affairs Council. In 2018, she moved to Scotland to pursue an MBA at the University of Edinburgh. While completing her capstone project, Alyssa learned more about the mission and impact of VOA Alaska and decided she wanted to find a way to become a part of the team. She joined the VOA Alaska team in November of 2019 as the Director of Development. Outside of work, Alyssa is on the Board of Alaska Common Ground and loves to spend time with her, Poppy and Thor.
