enrollment operations Team
Growing up in Wisconsin, Alyssa was very lucky to have a family that enjoyed road trips around the United States and learning about new cultures. In high school, she traveled to Costa Rica with her Spanish class, and that is all it took to fully cement the idea that international travel was something that would have to become a part of her life.
In college, her love of Lord of the Rings led her to the actual Middle Earth; she studied abroad in New Zealand, despite pursuing a degree in Spanish. After graduation, she worked in hospitality while waiting to be accepted into the Peace Corps. Her time in Senegal, West Africa, led her to the conclusion that she wanted to be in the business of helping others have amazing, transformational experiences abroad.
So, she moved to Monterey, California to pursue her M.A. in International Education Management, giving her a wealth of knowledge about the field of International Education, as well as the opportunity to live and work in Madrid, Spain to complete her degree.
Finished with this degree, she joined CEA as a Site Specialist, working directly with students to help them achieve their dreams of studying abroad. Now, she has moved to the Enrollment Operations team and shifted to a more behind-the-scenes role that focuses on constantly fine-tuning the student experience.
