Her favorite childhood memories are the annual 4th of July trips to Lake Almanor, CA with her grandparents. This grew into her love of the outdoors and a passion for world travel. Alyssa enjoys memorializing her travels with outdoor photos of both nature and urban landscapes. While traveling here and abroad, she always visits an art museum, as she says this is one of the best ways to get a taste for the area's history and culture. Another life-long passion is community engagement. She is on the board of the Community Foundation of Northern Nevada, the Planned Giving Round Table of Northern Nevada, the University of Nevada, Reno Honors College Alumni Chapter, and is also a member of the Estate Planning Council of Northern Nevada, and the TEDxReno team. When not working or traveling, Alyssa enjoys running, hiking, exploring, and spending time with her husband, Derek and their Husky, Zoey.
“I’m passionate about helping clients achieve their personal and financial goals. As a fiduciary, I value integrity and am committed to clients and doing what is in their best interest."
I practice making sound financial decisions through maintaining six months of living expenses in a savings account and automatically contributing to retirement and personal investment accounts.
I dedicate time to my physical well-being every day. I train for, and run, at least one half marathon each summer. I also enjoy hiking, snowshoeing, and strength training.
I practice mindfulness regularly. I dedicate time and space for my personal values and activities that bring me joy, such as gardening, sharing quality time with others, and exploring the outdoors.
I am a lifelong learner and I enjoy deepening my understanding of wealth management topics through research and attending conferences and educational events.
The Four Capital approach that applies to clients, other professionals, and our internal team allows me to lead a fulfilled life. I enjoy working in a fast-paced and innovative environment with a team that challenges and supports me to be my best.
