Alyssa Lyon

As Sustainable Communities Director at the Green Building Alliance, Alyssa believes people and neighborhoods function best when they contain economically thriving assets, and business and are referred to as transformational areas capable of successfully producing and retaining inhabitants who are prideful of their living spaces.
