  • While in college, Alyssa wrote an article for Spoon University about all the extravagant food-related things Rick Ross could have done with the $5.7 million he owed the IRS—and it got picked up by Food Network for their Snapchat story.
  • If you made a trip to Bloomington, IN between 2021-2023, you likely read Alyssa's work in the visitor guides available at hotels, Indiana University, and other local tourist attractions.
  • In her spare time, Alyssa devours romance novels and shares her book recommendations on TikTok—J. Lynn, Ali Hazelwood, Emily Henry, and Lauren Asher are some of her favorite authors.


During her undergrad, Alyssa began dabbling in writing articles for blogs and digital publications, including Spoon University. After graduating from Indiana University with a degree in English, she pursued a career in digital marketing and copywriting, working first in the health and wellness industry, then in the travel and tourism sector. Feeling drawn back to her writing days in college, Alyssa began freelance writing as a side hustle, then quickly decided she wanted to make a career out of her passion for authoring articles. Covering entertainment, home, fashion, lifestyle, and beauty, she's since garnered bylines in Architectural Digest, The Everygirl, SheKnows, StyleCaster, Well+Good, USA Today's Reviewed, and more.


Alyssa graduated from Indiana University Bloomington with a B.A. in English and a certificate in Public & Professional Writing, as well as a minor in Marketing from the Kelley School of Business.
