Please Give a Warm Welcome to Alyssa Kerlinger to OCEACT!

Alyssa Kerlinger – OCEACT Research Associate

Alyssa was born and raised in Medford, Oregon, where she currently lives. She graduated with a bachelor degree in Sociology and certificates in Nonprofit Management and Regional Studies and Applied Social Research from Southern Oregon University. While finishing her degree, Alyssa partnered with the Southern Oregon University Research Center to study student retention, analyzing the obstacles SOU students face to reach graduation. Alyssa has been able to assist with other research studies including: collecting data for Jackson County Health and Human Services’ Standardized Tobacco Assessment for Retail Settings and co-editing on Dr. Vincent Smith’s Food Assessment Research, which is currently submitted for publishing.

With her knowledge of the barriers that college students face, Alyssa started her career at Jackson County Mental Health as a Supported Education Specialist. There, she was able to assist mental health clients overcome barriers and achieve their education goals. It is with great excitement that Alyssa will continue her work in mental health and use her research experience in her new position as OCEACT’s Research Associate.

With a love for understanding and learning about people, Alyssa spent several years before college traveling through China, Puerto Rico, Israel and Kenya. In her free time, Alyssa enjoys continuing to travel, reading a good book, and camping or rafting with her husband and two dogs.
