Personal

Alyssa is a life-long Kansan, and therefore loves all things Royal, Chief, Sporting or Jayhawk. She has also recently been introduced to English Premier League soccer. Suffice it to say, the television is rarely tuned to anything but sports at her house. Alyssa also enjoys jogging around her Olathe neighborhood and spending time with her family, including her six nieces and nephews. You may also find her taking in a show at the Lyric Opera of Kansas City, where she is a season-ticket holder.
