Alyssa is from Wilson, NY and graduated from Niagara County Community College in 2016 with an Associates Degree in Humanities and Social Sciences. While at NCCC, Alyssa played on the women’s volleyball team! After 2 years of general studies, she transferred to Daemen College and graduated in January 2019 with her BS in Health Promotion and a Specialization in Health and Fitness Training.
Through her years at Daemen, she interned at Buffalo State College where she worked with men’s and women’s Division III athletics in the strength and conditioning department. During her time in college, she also worked at a women’s only gym and trained women of all ages and capabilities.
As a coach for Niagara County Volleyball Club, she works closely with high school students in the area where she grew up, and continues to give back to her community through planning and volunteering at her local church’s 5k. She loves to kayak, hike, run, and work out with friends – she stays active any way she can!
Although her experience is athletics based, she gained knowledge and experience working with the public through Daemen College and loves to implement athletics into the everyday life for the clients here at Dr. Derek Health and Fitness!
