Alyssa is the graphic designer for Rainbow Street. She earned her BA from Winthrop University in South Carolina, where you could find her hanging out at local galleries and playing in music ensembles on her bassoon.
From the land of boiled peanuts and southern colloquialisms, (“y’all” anyone?) she began working in Charlotte, NC in the website design and graphic design field. Alyssa currently is a marketing coordinator and graphic design head at Community Care Partners of Greater Mecklenburg, which is an umbrella non-profit group under Carolinas Healthcare System. She also co-owns and co-founded a Charlotte creative design business, Create-ster, LLC. When she is not designing, Alyssa can be found hiking, running, listening to live music, composing tunes, reading, and writing.
