Alyssa is on a mission to create positive change in the world. She came to Handel Group seven years ago with a desire to change her career. After spending nearly a decade in the biotech industry participating in the launch of two successful life changing medicines for Cystic Fibrosis and Hepatitis C, she still felt like there was something missing in her life. After one session with a coach at Handel Group, she quickly discovered what was missing – she wasn’t living true to her own dreams; she wasn’t happy; and she didn’t know how to become happy.
This realization inspired a journey: Alyssa became a coach, changed careers, learned how to date honestly, transformed the dynamic in her family, navigated addiction, and confronted how to create and maintain great relationships in her life. She brings a deep understanding of The Handel Method to the work she does with her clients and students at MIT. Her analytical mindset and process-oriented nature led to her work in the Media Division, and most recently, to build, test, and launch Inner.U, Handel Group’s first digital course.
Alyssa grew up in Boston and received her Bachelor’s degree in communication, film and technical writing from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst and her Master’s degree in Organizational Psychology from the Massachusetts School of Psychology. She is certified in process improvement techniques and six sigma practices. She is a dancer and practices 5 Rhythms dance. Alyssa lives in New York.
“Alyssa is extremely perceptive and has helped me frame issues in a way I never would have imagined. I have made much more progress in a year than I would have expected.” – Gregory P.
“Alyssa is on the ball and plays her A game consistently for clients. As her coachee Alyssa guides me with compassionate tenacity to find the pivotal game changing insight. She’s equally comfortable hanging out in the strategic clouds at fifty thousand feet as she is finding the diamond in the rough. Hell bent on accountability, she’ll always pinpoint an action to an insight, knowing that consistency builds tidal waves of change. I’m grateful for her care and wisdom.” – Neo Moreton, Founder & CEO BYOND and Urban OM Centre for Yoga & Meditation
