Alyssa's family joined the Richland Swim Club immediately after moving to Pine-Richland six years ago. She grew up at another local swim club, then lifeguarded and helped her father with his local pool and lifeguarding business in the North Hills area.

This will be Alyssa's fourth year serving on the board and hopes to continue to grow the social events calendar for the Club.
