Alyssa is a recent transplant to the Chicago area having moved this past June from Houston, Texas. As with all high-functioning McCready paralegal’s, she has found a local favorite caffeine hotspot, The Jackalope Coffee House. She uses her caffeinated wonder powers to update clients, handle the fine details, and assist attorneys with the discovery process.
When she isn’t lending her skillsets to the firm, she is busy attending school in the evenings in pursuit of her bachelor’s degree. She says that her favorite thing to do in her downtime is to hang out with her dog Wrigley and close friends while chomping down on a slice of pizza or five. Alyssa is an active person and enjoys yoga classes and rock climbing.
Born in Turkey, Alyssa spent a lot of time abroad because her mom was in the military. She has been to approximately half of the 50 states and has a plan to visit all the National Parks. She is a fan of road trips, concerts, and of course the Cubs. More interesting, she has a secret talent – she is a fire goddess performer. That’s right, hire her for any celebratory event and watch her spin fire-twirling hula-hoops in a whimsical fashion!
Her style is geared towards comfort on most days, but she doesn’t have a problem getting glammed up on the weekends. She says she loves wearing a classy high-heeled boot to strut around the streets of Chicago. She probably uses those boots that were “made for walking” to source out the best vinyl in town. Her love for vinyl has even helped her decorate. She says milk crates all overfilled with albums of every genre and generation including Nancy’s Sinatra’s famed song to accompany her signature boot collection. We love having this fire-twirling dynamo as part of our growing team and hope we get to see her in action one day!
