The YEC editorial team is growing once again! We’re excited to announce the addition of our newest Associate Editor, Alyssa Ammirato.

Alyssa lives in New York City. She majored in English at Montclair State University. Prior to joining the YEC team, Alyssa worked as a freelance writer and editor for Oracle, SkyMall, Bad Yogi, Brit + Co, Hello Innovation, Time Out New York and other lifestyle brands. Through 2015, she also worked as editor and event coordinator for PaperClip Communications, an educational resource publisher.

From Alyssa: “As a community-minded person, I’m so happy to be on a team to learn from and grow with as we work together for a common mission. As a storyteller by nature, I love having a hand in building the connection between a narrative and its audience, and find great joy in working in the details to give a story life.”

Outside of work, Alyssa is a registered yoga instructor who teaches and practices as much as possible. Off the mat, she’s often found running, reading and sampling every brunch menu in Harlem.
