Alisa is thrilled to be joining the Fusion Berkeley campus as the new Director of Admissions and Outreach! In this role, Alisa serves as the first point of contact for families and professionals to determine if Fusion Academy is the right fit for prospective students. She also helps the larger local community understand Fusion’s approach to education and the benefits of receiving a Fusion education.

Alisa earned a B.A. in Sociology with a minor in Child Development from Tufts University in Medford, MA. Later, she received a M.A. in Higher Education & Student Affairs from the University of San Francisco. During her studies, Alisa had the opportunity to be Team Leader for the Americorps Jumpstart program where she learned the power of individualized attention in education. She also balanced being the Captain of the Step Team, various internships in education, and volunteer work in the neighboring communities that taught her how to lead with love, empathy, and passion. She utilized these skills as an Admissions Officer at an art & design university for a number of years. At this time, however, Alisa could not be more excited to take on her new role as the Fusion Academy Director of Admissions and Outreach where she can have a meaningful impact in her hometown of Berkeley!

In Alisa’s spare time, she enjoys spending time with her family, frequenting local restaurants, and figuring out how to use new kitchen gadgets.
