I have been working with Alyssa since February 2017 and it has been such a pleasure. She is always so poised and professional in her coordination of Market events, and her assistance in sharing our brand story through D&D's network has been such a benefit. Each Market season she brings a fresh perspective to the design community, and I love that she always shares in my enthusiasm for new products, industry events, and notable designers.

Christine Haney

Vice President of Sales & Marketing, Vaughan Designs

Working with Alyssa has been a pleasure and I truly admire that she is available via email and phone, which is a rare thing these days! Alyssa has not only serviced us as a tenant with the traditional marketing we expect in the D&D Building, but she has actually added value to our plans beyond expectations. Her strategic thinking on brand and designer synergies and maximizing events and opportunities has been so helpful and I think of her as a collaborator in our company’s marketing efforts. I am reminded of the CEO dinner, the Dering Hall panel, and most recently learned of her expertise in graphic design in your execution of a recent print collateral. All to say, "thank you" for the level of expertise she brings to her work and for being a Vaughan brand advocate, as she is with all of her clients.
