Here are a few things my colleagues have had to say about working with me. I didn’t even have to bribe or blackmail them!
As a Manager:
It’s rare that you get the opportunity to work under someone who is a mentor and friend—but that’s exactly what I got when I worked with Alyssa. Alyssa hired me as a contract writer for AMazzina, LLC, and since then we have remained connected. Alyssa’s management style starts with setting the stage with clear expectations, and follows with encouragement and leadership to ensure deadlines are met. Alyssa praised me when I would go above and beyond, and was patient when I needed additional guidance on how to complete my assignments. Alyssa truly took me under her wing and taught me all things pertaining to content marketing and public relations. In the time I’ve known and worked for Alyssa, I have learned this: Alyssa takes her relationships very seriously, and her loyalty runs deep. She is trustworthy and consistent. She is brilliant. She knows what she wants, and she is kind. I have complete confidence in Alyssa’s management abilities and feel fortunate to know her.
Writer & Public Policy Expert
As an Employee:
Alyssa is not only a great writer, but she’s also a fantastic managing editor, thoughtful content strategist, and overall wonderful person to work with. I managed Alyssa at Stack Overflow, and during her time, she oversaw over 100 pieces of content, collaborated across several teams to get their stories out, and made a major impact on KPIs. Her work led to us nearly tripling our organic traffic to the blog within 8 months as well as a steady climb in referrals from our content to core products. We all loved working with Alyssa, and I hope I get to do so again soon!
Director of Brand Marketing, GitHub
Alyssa was our first hire outside of development or support and I was thrilled that she was able to instantly fit in with our development oriented team. It can sometimes be challenging to find your groove when working remotely, but she handled it beautifully.
During her time at UserScape she established blogs for each of our products, managed our social media accounts, worked on ebooks and long format content, and even live blogged an annual conference we run.
She’s passionate about inbound and social marketing and would be a great fit for a team looking to up their content marketing game.
Alyssa and I first worked together in the President’s Office at CSU Stanislaus. She quickly impressed all of us with her sharp intellect, professional demeanor, and creativity. She is a whiz at writing and editing. I recommended her to the president for a special project, and she conceived and executed it with excellence.
Years later, Alyssa supervised a group of thesis readers, and I was among them. She was thorough, precise, and personable. She earned my admiration even more with her superb leadership skills.
Anything Alyssa sets her mind to, she will accomplish to perfection.
