Alissa is a proud Cincinnatian and a University of Cincinnati alumna. An experienced project manager with a background in retail and product development, she returned to school and earned her MBA in 2019. Alissa has long been involved in community action and non-profit work, primarily for women’s health organizations and domestic violence shelters. She is also active in the Hamilton County Democratic Party, both as a Precinct Executive and board member for her local Democratic Club.
After being laid off from her job at the beginning of the pandemic, Alissa moved back to Cincinnati to start a new chapter. When she did, she found that Ohio was a much different political landscape than when she had moved away. She was extremely frustrated by the corruption in Columbus and the disregard for the needs of everyday Ohioans by some leaders in the Legislature. Always a student, she decided to learn what it would take to run for office. She intends to bring her passion for service and her open-minded collaborative nature to representing Ohio’s 30th House District, and building an equitable, sustainable future for the Buckeye State.
