Alyssa grew up in Valencia, CA. and went to Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy in La Canada, California where she was a four year varsity player and captain. She earned a full scholarship to Division 1 University of Delaware as an OH but played DS and won a conference championship. That was one of her most exciting moments in her volleyball career. She transferred to Loyola Marymount because it was closer to home and she was seeking a more positive coaching environment. At LMU, she played Indoor as well as Sand as a DS.
She has five years of coaching under her wing as well as coaching private lessons at Prime Athlete. She loves to coach technical volleyball IQ in terms of passing and hitting on the outside.
