Welcome Alyssa

Help us welcome a new member to the Goose Gang: Alyssa fills a brand new Events Manager position at your Goose.

Alyssa.jpg

With 20 years of experience organizing events and programs for nonprofits, Alyssa is excited to combine her skills in education and community building with her passion for local, sustainable, and delicious food. She'll be overseeing private Enoteca reservations, free tasting events, and more. (Be sure to subscribe to the Goose Report for updates on new programs.)

When she's not at Goose, we might find Alyssa walking her dog Romeo through her Fountain Square neighborhood or biking with friends to a new restaurant. A self-proclaimed agro-tourism nerd, Alyssa says, "I'll take any opportunity to tour a farm, candy factory, or distillery." 

Alyssa co-founded the Indianapolis Ladies of Leisure Society, and we asked what she might pick from the Goose shelves to share at the next book club meeting with this group of formidable women. "Cheese. All of the cheese. Please don't make me pick," she says with a wink.

With farmstead cheeses from near and far forever changing in the Goose case, we like the way Alyssa is thinking. Take a page from her (book club) book -- come in soon to sample the latest selection of curds 'n whey and say hi to Alyssa!
