STORY (AND CORNY JOKE) TELLER. CHRISTIAN. POET. RUNNER. GOOFBALL EXTRAORDINAIRE.

These are a few of the words Alyssa Townsend uses to describe herself.

Born in San Jose, California, Alyssa made her way to the east coast where she grew up in Raleigh, North Carolina. She attended school in the southern part of heaven at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and received a Bachelor of Arts in journalism and mass communication with a specialization in public relations. 

In 2015, she continued her way down South to the Sunshine State, settling into the Upside of the Florida at the University of West Florida's University Marketing and Communications department. She later moved on to Innisfree Hotels as the director of social media, and then project manager for Bee Loud, Innisfree’s in-house digital marketing agency. 

Alyssa is a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated, Leadership Pensacola's Class of 2019 and the Impact 100 Pensacola Bay Area Chapter. She sits on the board for Autism Pensacola as well as the Pensacola Network for Black Professionals.

Whenever she’s not crafting communications strategies or serving in the community, she can be found eating chocolate chip cookies, running half-marathons (to counter the cookies), struggling valiantly in a yoga studio or speaking at a poetry open mic.
