Alyssa is a Senior Analyst with EAB’s District Leadership Forum, working primarily with public school superintendents. Her research has focused on the achievement gap, with an emphasis on practical strategies to overcome the unique barriers low-income and minority students face on the path to post secondary education. More recently, her research has explored actionable ways that school districts can support the mental health and social-emotional well being of both early-elementary and adolescent students.
Prior to joining the District Leadership Forum, Alyssa worked as a research associate supporting EAB’s higher education member institutions in determining the feasibility of academic program creation, innovation, and expansion. She has completed customized research reports across a wide range of topics including data analytics, business, health professions, education, and more.
When Alyssa is not working with public school leaders, you can find her hiking or exploring the D.C. area with her puppy, River.
Alyssa holds a Master of Education degree in Comparative and International Education from Lehigh University, where she also received her bachelor’s degree in global studies and psychology.
