Alyssa grew up in Lake Zurich, IL and joined our team in 2020. She obtained a bachelor’s degree from University of Iowa in Human Physiology and attended PA school at Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science.
Prior to PA school, she worked as a nurse assistant to orthopedic patients in a hospital setting as well as in the emergency room. She genuinely enjoys getting to know her patients on a personal level, giving them individualized care. One of her favorite parts of orthopedics is encouraging patients through the rehabilitation journey after surgery and she finds great reward when patients meet their personal treatment goals.
In her free time, she enjoys keeping active by taking dance classes around the city of Chicago, taking her English Lab to the dog park, and finding any excuse to be outside with friends during the summer months.
