Meet Alyssa, Our Amazing Assistant!
My name is Alyssa, and I am the person behind the computer at KiSSandMaKeUp!
I graduated from Central Connecticut State University in 2010 with a degree in Communication and an emphasis in Public Relations. Growing up I never really had a set career path in mind. By the time I got to college, I wanted to be a journalist and initially, that was my major. I took a lot of classes in journalism and eventually settled into my degree path of Communication. In my mind, a Communication major promised me the same opportunities, but also made me appealing to hiring professionals the business world.
After college, I tried a lot of things. I moved to Boston and was a waitress at Boston Beer Works. I worked as an assistant at the Board of Heath in Framingham, MA. I spent 5 years working in both Customer Service and Sales roles at a plastic manufacturing company. I spent over 10 years working (on and off) at a Greenhouse. And finally, I landed as a freelance content creator. I have worn many hats throughout my short professional career, but my favorite one allows me to be creative and revolves around the world of beauty.
I love anything and all thinks pretty, sparkly, and beauty related. I am one of those people whose favorite place to be is in the salon chair watching my hair stylist work her magic creating my latest dreamed up hair color and cut. I am also always the first to raise my hand when a photographer is looking for a model for a styled shoot (pick me!) Hair and makeup – I love it all! I, unfortunately, was not blessed with any of the hands-on talents related to a career in the beauty industry, but love that I can still work in it. Let’s just say I have a strong appreciation for all artists.
I fell into the CT bridal industry in October of 2016 and made a few friends who work in the industry-the rest is history! I quickly realized that I could have the best of both worlds (beauty and being creative) by nestling into a behind the scenes job in the bridal beauty industry. And here I am!
Lately, I have been very busy working on my freelancing company and being the assistant to Boss Babe Pam. When I do come across a few minutes to spare, you can likely find me laying in my hammock, reading a book, driving all over Connecticut in a Jeep Wrangler with my husband, listening to Jon Bellion and petting every animal within a ten-mile radius of where I am currently standing. I am also a firm believer in everything happening for a reason including you reading these very words.
I’m so excited to start this adventure with the kick ass team at KiSSandMaKeUp!
