Alyssa is our Family Relations Manager. Working with children during high school prompted Alyssa to work toward her BAS of Early Childhood and Special Education which she proudly received from University of Minnesota Duluth. She spent summers working as a summer nanny for many families and she is still connected with them today! Upon graduating she moved into the retail space where she worked as a manager for many years, honing her training, HR and supervisory skills. Alyssa combines her skills of Early Childhood development and education with her ability to train and lead to our team. When she is not connecting with families needing care, or checking in on our team of nannies and sitters, she enjoys reading, cooking and gardening. On the weekends you can find Alyssa spending time with her husband and blended family of 2 boys, 2 dogs and 2 cats, enjoying the outdoors or planning fun family game nights.
