Alyssa balances her family life with her job (as a photographer) and her studies. Her 4.0 grade point average is evidence of her passion and attention to detail. The following quote from Alyssa runs through her work and volunteerism:
“The most comprehensive way to have agency in important issues is by becoming a licensed landscape architect. The environment, environmental justice, the protection of communities and culture, creating beauty through nature and passing on our best practices and values to the next generation are all issues that this profession touches upon.”
At our instructor meeting, Alyssa was a unanimous nominee for outstanding work, collegiality, her volunteer work for the Student Show, the jury selection for the show, her work with schools as a board member of the parent organizations for Mark Twain Middle and Venice High School. She is also a student member of ASLA, and a member of AWA+D. At our biennial charratte, she led an amazing team and directed and assisted her team to meet all deliverables, and then a stunning presentation.
