Growing up, Alyssa London experienced the different worlds that make up her heritage and these experiences greatly defined who she is.
Alyssa is multi-cultural in her heritage and in her lifestyle. Her mother is 4th generation Czech and Norwegian. Her father is Tlingit, a tribe from Southeast Alaska, French Canadian and Scottish. Alyssa is fascinated by how ancestry and heritage in the United States become such defining aspects of an individual’s identity as has definitely been the case for her.
Throughout her early childhood, Alyssa went with her family to ‘The Ranch’ in Chester, Montana to visit her mom’s side of the family. Some memorable past times there include exploring the hundreds of acres on ATVs, branding cattle and throwing “mud pies” at her younger sister. She also went to Alaska to visit her grandparents, her dad’s side of the family, and attended Sealaska and Tlingit cultural events with her dad. Through these experiences she fully witnessed the great outdoors and was exposed and immersed in her Tlingit heritage.
The combination of these childhood experiences of the wide open space of the ranch and countryside, and the untamed nature of the last frontier, Alaska, she developed a love for the outdoors, and for exploring the world and encountering its many cultures through travel.
Passionate about travel, she has been to 25 countries. She studied abroad in college in Madrid and travelled around Western Europe during that time. After college graduation she backpacked through Central and South America. Most recently she spent several weeks exploring Brazil with friends.
At Microsoft she was on the Partner Channel Marketing team. She focused on Digital Marketing and Community Management. What she enjoyed in her work was the opportunity to interact with Microsoft partners, and learn and take leadership in the growing field of digital marketing and communications. Her biggest highlight in role was co-hosting on main stage at the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference, travelling to Europe (London, Prague, Vienna, and Paris) for work, and project managing a creative storytelling marketing campaign called Join In.
Alyssa now works at OneAccord Digital a webtranformation, digital marketing and data leveraging company. She is working on economic development in Indian Country by way of the technological services her organization provides.
