Born, raised and educated in Bakersfield, CA, Alyse has spent her career seeking long-term solutions to community issues. First through improving high school graduation rates and college access, then through the building up of our nonprofit community, community benefit has always been center stage. After taking several years to support and learn from communities nationally and internationally, Alyse has refocused her efforts on the city that means so much to her. As a wife and mother of two, Alyse feels the impact of her work on her own family.
My Power 9
My favorite Power 9® is Purpose. In a time where there are so many pulls on my time and attention, knowing and holding onto my purpose helps me stay focused and centered, knowing that I matter.
