      Alyssa has always enjoyed everything about the outdoors. From a young age she spent a lot of time gardening with her parents as a chore and as she grew older this developed into a hobby. After graduating from UNCW she found a job working for a local Landscape Design company as an Administrative Assistant. It is when she took this job that she realized just how passionate she was about landscape design. With Alyssa’s extensive experience and knowledge in the industry she is a go-to person in the office and wears many hats at Element. She handles all of our finances and marketing, assists with business planning, and even gets to get her hands dirty on site with our perennial and annual bed layouts.
