My Story

I grew up in Birmingham, AL and Phoenix, AZ with my parents and sister, Abby.  Throughout my childhood, I had amazing opportunities to play many sports including soccer, basketball, gymnastics, dance, and tennis.  These experiences led to my passion for how these sports operate and my journey to Samford University to study Sports Marketing and Data Analytics.

Alyssa is a dedicated, smart, committed, and thoughtful young professional who treats people with respect, and lives out a heart of service to others and excellency with her works
