Alyssa has worked in the veterinary field since 2015.  In that time, she has learned about the care that goes into keeping pets healthy, like her rescued Pit bull Terrier mix, Lilly, whom she rescued in February 2017. Lilly is Alyssa’s first dog, and she can’t imagine her life without her Furry-Friend!

Home renovation is a major hobby for Alyssa. She got married in 2018, and the couple own a house that had been previously been abandoned.  Alyssa and her husband have been working hard to bring their house back to life, inside and outside.  Alyssa has enjoyed seeing the transformation that takes place with hard work and a do-it-yourself approach. When she is not renovating, Alyssa enjoys spending time with her family. She is close with her older sister, brother-in-law, and two nieces who are in high school. The family even walked for Take Steps for Crohn’s and Colitis to help people living with these diseases, including Alyssa’s niece, Emily.  Alyssa is inspired by Emily’s strength and determination.

Alyssa also enjoys going to the beach.  Every summer growing up, her family would vacation in Brigantine, NJ. Alyssa loves to sit by the water and feel the sunshine on her face.
