AMERICORPS VISTA PROGRAM ASSISTANT
Hello, my name is Alyssa Harrington. Here’s a little tidbit about how I landed at Mile High Health Alliance. Born and raised in Montana, my love for health and wellness has motivated me throughout my life. From childhood, constantly curious about healthy, local foods and the benefits of outdoor recreation on the rivers and in the mountains near my home, to publishing a weekly health blog on my college campus, I’ve been fortunate to draw my passion from family, friends, peers, and nature along the way.
I earned a Bachelor’s degree in Community Health and Prevention Sciences from the University of Montana. In the summer after my junior year, I completed an internship for the Greater Kansas City Chamber of Commerce, Civic and Community Initiatives department focusing on healthy living and workplace wellness. After college I decided to join AmeriCorps, which led me to Denver. Over the course of this year, I will have the privilege of building on my passion for public health every single day. I’m so excited for this new adventure in Colorado, motivating others to inspire a community of wellbeing and better health through collaboration.
