My name is Alyssa Dick and I am originally from Mason City, Iowa. I attended Iowa State University where my love and passion for financial aid started in 2012. I was a work study student in their financial aid department specializing in verification. After graduation I decided to make financial aid my full time career and was employed at Des Moines Area Community College in Des Moines, IA. Several years later my husband accepted a job in Kansas City, MO and we started our new adventure south! I was then employed at the University of Missouri-Kansas City as a financial aid coordinator working with graduate students and verification. I am currently employed at Johnson County Community College as a financial aid processing coordinator and very excited to be here and grow in my financial aid career. My husband and I have two boys. Kaleb is 3, and our newest son, Cooper, is 3 months old and him and I share a birthday. In my free time I enjoy being outdoors and currently spend a lot of time at the playground to burn the never ending energy of my toddler!
