Alyssa first came to NOLS in 2013 on an Outdoor Educator Course out of Lander, Wyoming. It wasn't long before she decided to leave a big-city life in San Francisco to return to the Wind River Range, and she took a job in Admissions and Marketing at NOLS in 2014. Currently, she's nurturing an alumni network 280,000 strong as Alumni Relations Coordinator. In her free time, you can find her teaching yoga, rock climbing, trail running, and skiing. A couple times a year she hits the links to relive her college golf days at the University of Kansas (rock chalk!).
