Allissa was born into the Awaesaeh Totaem Clan of the Menominee Nation in Wisconsin and is a member of the Ta’neeszahnii Clan of the Diné Nation in New Mexico. She joined the AchieveMpls team in 2016 and enjoys providing executive support to our president and CEO and serving as liaison for our board of directors. Allissa earned a bachelor’s degree in political science from the University of New Mexico and appreciates working in the education and nonprofit worlds.
As a transplant to Minneapolis, Allissa loves exploring the Twin Cities and participating in the area’s many arts and cultural events. In her spare time you’ll catch her in a hot yoga class, reading and relaxing in her downtown crash pad and traveling to Wisconsin to her family’s lake cabin. She cherishes her fur babies, Coco and Petunia, who are spoiled rotten with cuddles and belly rubs from the AchieveMpls staff.
