Alyssa is an Alpha Psi Omega and Omicron Delta Kappa graduate of Elon University with a BFA in Music Theatre and Minor in Communications. She is also a 3x State Champion athlete in soccer and track & field.
One of her most impacting projects, as director and performer, was an original production titled N.E.W. (Night of Elucidating Words) - a collection of real, forthright stories with an uplifting conclusion. Told from various perspectives through spoken word, song, and poetry, storytellers from all walks of life bravely share how their largest obstacles and tests have become their testimony.
Offstage, Alyssa heads Believe & Dream Photography. She made her gallery debut in 2011. Since then her moments captured have been shared in digital photography conferences across the US, Broadway playbills, album art for musicians and more!
Alyssa is an actor, singer, dancer, and model with an athletic and musical background currently based out of NYC. If you're in the city, you can often spot Alyssa doing a "giddy wiggle," as her friends have named the dance, when she finds a scrumptious GF donut or decadent sweet!
From sprinting through the circus tent as the Animal Tamer, to drop splits as a corky Showgirl, to a dangerous creature of the Phantom's lair, not a moment was taken for granted as an original company member in the US Premiere of Andrew Llyod Webber's sequel to The Phantom of the Opera, LOVE NEVER DIES. Alyssa made her principal debut as Meg Giry for a sold out crowd of 4,700 at the infamous ATL Fox Theatre.
Some of Alyssa's most recent credits include JERSEY BOYS, MAMMA MIA!, MISS SAIGON, & JOSEPH AND THE TECHNICOLOR DREAMCOAT, working with Tony Award winning choreographer, director, Andy Blankenbuehler, best known for choreographing Hamilton. Alyssa loves hitting the road and diving into the local finds and culture of each city on tour; so far performing in 48 states in the US, plus cities in Canada and Tokyo!
