Alyssa is a lifelong traveler thanks to her amazing parents, who both had successful careers in the airline industry. She was born in Los Angeles, but lived and traveled all over the world with her parents before returning to live in Orange County in 1984.
After college, Alyssa followed in her family’s footsteps and worked in the travel industry for many years. She adventured through Australia, New Zealand, Indonesia, Southeast Asia, Tahiti, South Africa, Europe, Mexico, Canada, Central America and Hong Kong.
Ten years ago, Alyssa began a new journey to fulfill her lifelong dream of becoming a teacher. She returned to school at the University of California, Irvine and earned her California Teaching Credential and Master’s Degree in Teaching. Alyssa taught first, second, and third grades at a private school in Irvine, California for ten years. Though she loves teaching, Alyssa came to realize that the demands of her growing Travel Laundry Company business would require her total commitment. In June of 2015, Alyssa made the courageous leap from the security of her teaching career to devote all her energy and talents to TLC.
