Alyssa was born in Winfield, Illinois and spent most of her childhood in the suburbs of Chicago. Her grandfather’s job as a high school Anatomy and Physiology teacher was the perfect catalyst to get her interested in science. Alyssa finished her first two years of college in Omaha, Nebraska at Creighton University before she moved to New Hampshire and graduated with her degree in Psychology from Plymouth State. Her prior experiences as a Barista at Starbucks and a Phlebotomist at Dartmouth Hitchcock contributed to her foundation of customer service and medical aptitude. Alyssa is excited to be part of Dartmouth Health Connect as a Health Coach because it gives her the opportunity to be part of a team that provides individualized wellness goals to the Upper Valley community. She hopes to eventually go back to school and become a Nurse Practitioner.
In her free time, she enjoys hiking, scuba diving, spending time with her family, traveling, finding new coffee shops and being in the kitchen.
