Growing up in a household that valued creative expression and thoughtful citizenship allowed Alyssa to start developing her passions from a very young age. Her creative pursuits eventually blossomed into her qualifying as a percussionist on the Mizzou drumline—where she has performed internationally at venues such as the Schönbrunn Palace in Prague and the Dublin St. Patrick’s Day Parade. Civically, she became dedicated to serving her community, which culminated in landing a position managing social media and providing accurate facts for floor discussions for the Missouri House of Representatives. Last summer, she held a content marketing internship with ProPhase Marketing, a full service company from Minnesota, and she currently serves as a communications intern for the University of Missouri Office of Service-Learning, as well as the social media and apparel manager for the Marching Mizzou Drumline. But, she’s never seen The Incredibles before. At least we can make fun of her for that.
