hi there. my name is Alyssa.
I’m a designer and strategist from rural Vermont. This small state has instilled in me the value of uplifting communities, and I try to continue that tradition by bridging design methods and research with participatory practices in my work. As a result, I consider myself somewhat of a design translator: helping bridge the gap between design and its use by others.
Previously, I’ve worked at or with: Reboot, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, USAID, UNWomen, and Orbis International, among others.
I’m based in Brooklyn, NY, where you can find me reading in the park, trying to find all the vegetarian dumplings, and DJing on the weekends.
