Alyssa is a travel enthusiast, an avid tea drinker, a foodie, an online entrepreneur, and a small-town girl.

She's always been actively involved in ministry growing up in the Ottawa Valley as a pastor's kid. But at the age of 18, she went off to Thailand to serve on the mission field.

She devoted 5 years of her life helping the local communities, training up leaders, and planting churches. It was there that she developed a passion and skill for photography, videography, and digital art.

In March 2020, she returned to Canada in the middle of a pandemic with no home church. When she came to Peace Tower Church with her family, she felt like she belonged. Immediately afterward, she began volunteering in the media team.

Now she is working as the administrative assistant, along with leading the media team.
