Alyssa was born in Minnesota. She moved to Arizona for college and loved it so much that she never left. Alyssa met the team while boarding her own dog, Preston, at Wagging Tails.
As she became more familiar with the shop and our mission, Alyssa decided to join our staff. She brings with her strong experience in corporate organization, a can-do attitude, and a deep passion for animals and animal rescue.
She currently fosters for Follow Your Heart Animal Rescue. In her spare time, Alyssa loves to explore different parks and hiking trails (with Preston and Eleanor as her sidekick, of course!). She is a certified yoga teacher and teaches in her spare time. She is also dedicated to lifelong learning and is currently focused on expanding her knowledge of meditation and connection with the beautiful world we live in.
