Alyssa is new to Austin and originally from Long Island, New York. She received her Bachelor of Science from Saint Joseph’s College and began her career at an accounting firm where she expanded her knowledge in business and accounting.
It was through her firm’s non-profit foundation, The NYBKW Charitable Foundation, that she discovered her passion for philanthropy, event coordination, finance, and public relations. Her first event generated more than $150,000, which was donated to local children’s hospitals.
In her current role as WFF’s Operations Coordinator, she is responsible for day-to-day operations and marketing and events support. She loves that her role combines her business and accounting experience, her passion for the non-profit world and her love of wine and food. She craves knowledge and looks forward to furthering her wine education through classes and eventually certifications. She hopes to one day study to become a sommelier.
In her spare time, she enjoys boating, traveling, and fine dining. She spent this past winter living in various parts of Mexico and likes to explore her creative side through website design. Her favorite parts of Texas thus far are the beautiful vineyards and lakes.
