When Alyssa (the pretty redhead in the blue dress) and I became friends a few years ago, I knew I’d found someone I super special! Since then we’ve had all of the good times you could expect from two girlfriends in their 20s, but more importantly, she has become an absolute necessity for me professionally! See, Alyssa is an excellent hair stylist, makeup artist and assistant, all rolled up into one beautiful and friendly package! On set, she anticipates what I need even before I know that I need it, and she’s 100% reliable! I ADORE this girl. To say i’m sad that I couldn’t pack her into my suitcase and take her here with me is a severe understatement. To temper the sting, here is Alyssa and her wonderful family – The Hamiltons!!
