Welcome to Trans-Border, Alyssa Aufiero!
Please give a warm welcome to the newest member of our import pricing team — Alyssa Aufiero! Alyssa is excited to begin her role here at Trans-Border as it is her first step into the world of freight forwarding!
Alyssa was born and raised right here in Ballston Spa, NY. She has spent the last several years in event management within the hospitality & tourism industry. In her most recent role, Alyssa was focused mainly on wedding management – the business of making dreams come true. As you can imagine, working with couples and vendors to make these dreams a reality takes a lot of dedication and communication! When asked what inspires her, Alyssa replied, “The feeling you get when you help someone out and get the job done for them.”
In 2019 she got engaged and enthusiastically started planning her own wedding. Then COVID-19 hit – forcing her to readjust. She eventually arrived at plan C and was happily married in Fall 2020! Alyssa and her husband are devoted dog parents to their two German Shepard’s – Max and Demi. If you ever want to know if fate is real – just ask Alyssa about how she ended up with her dog Max!
Along with the challenges of planning her wedding, the pandemic gave Alyssa a new perspective on her career path which encouraged her to try something different. Here’s where Trans-Border comes in. Alyssa is most excited to learn a new industry and get to know new people along the way! So far her favorite part of being on our team is the people she’s met. “Everyone has been very welcoming, friendly, and helpful.”
When she isn’t working or taking care of her dogs, Alyssa is cheering on the LA Rams (she’s a big fan). She also has fun finding new shows to watch. So, whether it is a game night or an episode of Game of Thrones she’s happy to be spending quality time with her family!
We are very excited to have Alyssa at Trans-Border! Stop by Alyssa’s desk or drop her a welcome message at email@example.com.
