About Alyssa: I completed my undergraduate degree in 2010 at Kansas State University, where I received a B.S. in Business Administration (Marketing) and a minor in Communications. While at Kansas State, I competed for its NCAA Equestrian Team (horseback riding). I have been competing with horses since I was a small girl and have been able to travel all over the country to compete.
Previous Legal and/or Professional Experience: I worked for a global market research firm in their quantitative research division for over two years. We specialized in forecasting and in innovation research for manufacturers, particularly in the consumer packaged goods sector.
What do you like the most about being at NIU Law? I chose NIU Law for several reasons. First, I was impressed by the commitment to catering to students’ specific interests and to assigning mentors and other resources to first-year students early in our academic careers. Second, when I visited campus, it was apparent that members of the close-knit community inspired each other to do better each day. On first impression, it seemed like a very collaborative college and so far, my expectations have been met. Finally, I wanted a school of which I was not only confident in the quality, but also that I knew to be the smartest financial investment.
This interview was conducted in Fall 2012.
