Originally from San Diego, CA, Alisha relocated to Long Beach after high school to attend Cal State Long Beach, where she graduated with her B.S. in Business Management in 2012. During her last year of college, Alisha was headhunted by the CEO of Dedola Global Logistics, and was selected for the company’s prestigious marketing internship before she even graduated. After completing the three month internship she was offered a full-time position with Dedola, which she began only two short weeks after her graduation. While this experience provided Alisha with key sales + business experience, she’d always wanted to work in the event planning industry, so she decided to make a career change and joined the Jay’s team.
Alisha came to Jay's as a Business Development Specialist and has since spearheaded a new department as Jay's Director of Business Development. Alisha focuses on forming relationships with potential clients and business partners while educating them about the expansiveness of Jay’s services. She considers herself to be an ‘ambassador of knowledge’, representing Jay’s as the one-stop shop that we are. She is happy to say this is her dream job and hopes to never leave the Jay's team.
