Alyssa Pierce

Writer and Social Media Consultant

I'm a writer, blogger, and social media manager from Jersey City, New Jersey. I earned my BA in English from Rutgers University-Newark in 2014. While in school I interned with NBCUniversal as a social media intern for the Oxygen Network. After working in education for a few years, I left my job as a middle school Language Arts teacher to write and do social media consulting full time.
