She then moved to the San Francisco Bay Area to pursue a Master of Science in Physician Assistant Studies and a Master of Public Health at Touro University, which she completed in 2017.

She later moved to the Salem area and joined Oregon Oncology Specialists at the end of 2019. She continues to be a member of the American Academy of Physician Assistants and the Association of Physician Assistants in Oncology.
Alyssa enjoys building relationships with her patients and colleagues to create a supportive environment for patients and provide the best possible care. When she is not caring for patients, she enjoys movies, cooking, hiking, and traveling, as well as spending time with her fiancé, family, and friends.
