In April, Global Reach added two new team members to our Ames office. Please join us in welcoming Gabe and Alyssa!
Gabe joins us as a Project Manager and brings with him a wealth of experience in account and relationship management. He obtained his Bachelor's degree in Advertising (with business emphasis) at Iowa State University, and is currently working toward getting his Master's in Theology via Cornerstone Church here in Ames.
Originally from Keosauqua, Iowa, Gabe enjoys many diverse activities such as capturing and editing videos and reading a healthy mix of theology, history, contemporary fiction, biographies, and classics. He also likes watching movies, playing soccer, rock climbing, and experimenting with a new quadcopter drone.
Gabe has two daughters, the youngest of which is under a month old. Congratulations, Gabe!
Alyssa joins the Global Reach staff as a part-time receptionist. Originally from Whitehall, Pennsylvania, where she lived for 21 years, Alyssa moved to Ames at the end of July to work for AmeriCorps VISTA at the Veterans Center at Iowa State University. While there, she served as an outreach coordinator. Before that, Alyssa was an assistant teacher at a daycare back home in Pennsylvania.
She attended college at West Chester University of Pennsylvania where she received her Bachelor of Arts in History with a minor in Professional and Secondary Education.
For fun, Alyssa loves to bake or cook, read, and go on adventures with her significant other. An interesting fact about Alyssa is that she will try anything once; skydiving, spelunking, you name it!
