Meet our Leadership Spotlight this week, our Human Resources Intern, Alyssa LaCapra! Her positive attitude and ambitious work ethic make her a perfect fit for our Kirkwood team. Keep reading below to learn more about Alyssa!

Alyssa was born in Palatine, Illinois where she grew up cheering on her older brothers play high school football. Watching her family so engaged in athletic events motivated her to pursue sports at an early age. She enjoyed playing soccer growing up and eventually moved on to play varsity tennis during her high school career.

However, coming out of high school she was unsure of her future career path. So she chose to complete all of her general education courses at Harper College before committing to a university. In 2016, she graduated from Harper College with her Associates Degree and then transferred to Lake Forest College. She is currently a senior there and plans to graduate in May with her Bachelor’s Degree in Marketing.

We’re so glad to have Alyssa on our HR team and we can’t wait to see what the future holds in store for her.
