Alyssa Mertes

Alyssa loves food. A LOT. Particularly pizza and popcorn, but she knows beggars can’t be choosers. When she’s not stuffing her face (which is rare), she loves watching movies, playing volleyball and softball, and engaging in any number of interesting shenanigans. If she had to pick a spirit animal, she’d be an otter because they are playful and love to laugh. Most of the time she’s laughing at herself, whether other people are laughing with or at her is to be determined.

I just hope someday I can follow in the footsteps of true leaders such as yourselves and have have a company that cares about people and understands without that we would have nothing. Thank you and I wish Joe and Alyssa the best of luck and your company makes the world a better place.
