From an early age, Alyssa has found inspiration in the built environment, exploring her creativity through sketching, and bringing ideas to life through models. While attending Carnegie Mellon University, Alyssa was president of the National Organization of Minority Architecture Students and led the development of key DEI Initiatives in the School of Architecture and College of Fine Arts. She gained first-hand knowledge of building construction, serving in various roles for higher education and mixed-use construction on the East Coast.
Alyssa has a passion for affordable housing and cultural architecture that provides a beneficial impact on surrounding communities. She is currently working on Lincoln Tacoma, an affordable housing development, where she supports project design and documentation. Alyssa is an active member of NOMA NW, AIA Seattle Diversity Roundtable, and the AIA Seattle Membership Committee.
On the weekends, you can find Alyssa bingeing podcasts, trying new restaurants, and exploring the Pacific Northwest with her husband.
