I’m a product manager, community leader, civic technologist, event planner, and outdoors lover based in New Orleans.
I bring my enthusiasm for creating magical user experiences, democratizing complex processes, telling great stories, and coordinating purpose-driven teams to my role as Associate Product Manager at Levelset, a software platform that empowers a fair payment process in the construction industry.
I’m passionate about bringing magical tech experiences to bear on complex problems and systems burdened by inequality. I love chatting about all things in civic innovation x tech — would love to hear from you at alyssa@alyssadizon!
As a 2016 Venture for America Fellow, I joined Levelset (formerly zlien) in New Orleans as part of a fellowship for recent grads who want to learn to build businesses while revitalizing cities around the US. I studied politics and helped lead non-profits in the entrepreneurship support community at the University of Virginia.
I hail from Northern Virginia (right outside Washington DC) and come from a big, loving Filipino family that has inspired me to work hard, stay grounded, and always find a reason to smile. I love writing, reading, dancing, cooking, yoga, travel, event planning, and hosting friends and family in New Orleans.
