Alyssa graduated from the University of Colorado in 2003 with a degree in Anthropology. Alyssa has really enjoyed the past 4 years as the vendor coordinator and event organizer for Carbondale’s Dandelion Day. As a volunteer, she has helped to create an event that celebrates sustainability, community, and spring. With close to 70 vendors, 2014 was the biggest celebration yet! Alyssa felt that RFL was the place that will allow her to feel like a more competent, effective leader and expected to be able to better present herself to the community and her clients. Once she feels that she is able to more clearly convey her thoughts, she wants to consider taking larger steps to guide Carbondale.
