Alisa Pickett

Director of Outreach


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.


As the Director of Outreach at the Fusion Walnut Creek and Berkeley campuses, I am so excited to build meaningful relationships with Fusion families and their network of supporting professionals. The teams at these campuses are stellar and I am ecstatic to be joining such enthusiastic and devoted teams. I look forward to meeting each and every one of the Walnut Creek families and learning more about how I can make your experience with us even more impactful.
