Like many young athletes, Alyssa's interest in training sparked after having been a multi-sport athlete herself. Having spent her youth and teenage years as a competitive soccer, basketball, and softball player, she quickly fell in love with everything a high level athlete had to offer. She attended the University of Maine on a D1softball scholarship where her team became American East champions and she earned Rookie of the Year in 2016. Alyssa later signed as a Demarini Factory Professional softball player in 2023 where she has travelled around the country playing slowpitch softball at the conference Major level. She is a USSSA Major Softball player who won Conference Rookie of the Year and Conference USSSA AA World Champions in 2023.
Alyssa earned her Bachelors degree in Kinesiology and Exercise Science from the University of Maine where she completed her internship helping Division 1 athletes in various sports recover from injuries and make modifications to their exercise programs to fit their physical needs. . After graduating, she worked as a personal trainer at Ocean State Community and Wellness teaching Regymen workouts, TRX and boxing classes. She also worked as an Adapted Physical Education coach with the Special Olympics. She was a Strength and Conditioning coach at HOPS Athletic Performance where she worked with many baseball and softball athletes. She has also earned her certificate as a Mike Boyles Functional Training provider.
When Alyssa isn't on the softball field or coaching, she enjoys cooking, hiking, and going to concerts, and her absolute favorite buddy is her pitbull "Vegas".
