Employees Who Elevate – Alyssa Bair
In March, we celebrate Women in History and their contributions to society. We honor these inspiring women and their rich history of sacrifice, hard work, and bravery. We want to introduce you to one of our very own, present-day honorable women, Elevation’s Chief Technology Officer, Alyssa Bair.
Dancing With the Stars Arizona 2020 – People’s Choice Award
On February 29, 2020, after six months of training and hours of practice, Alyssa danced an exciting samba at the 14th annual Dancing with the Stars gala fundraiser. The fundraiser benefits the National Kidney Foundation of Arizona and typically brings in 60% of their funding. This year’s theme was “An Evening in Eden.” Alyssa and her dance partner, Ivan Dishliev, won the People’s Choice Award, which was determined by votes at the event.
Over $115,000 in Personal Fundraising
As the 2nd top donor, Alyssa personally raised over $115,000 for the National Kidney Foundation of Arizona. In total, the Foundation raised $548,000 at this year’s event. The National Kidney Foundation of Arizona provides emergency financial assistance to people suffering from Kidney Disease and transplant patients. Their services include utility shutoff prevention, rides to dialysis, nutritional supplements, dental treatment, and providing Camp Kidney for patients ages 8-18.
Continuing to Elevate
But Alyssa’s outreach doesn’t stop there; recently, she led our IT team as we made the transition into becoming a fully mobile workforce. The Technology Team put in many long hours troubleshooting issues. Making sure there were minimal interruptions with the changing COVID-19 guidelines and helped make it possible for all non-field Elevation employees to work from home.
Creating Positive Energy
Alyssa, and our other talented women employees, are a critical part of how we have been creating positive energy since 2014. You can learn more about how Elevation can positively impact your home-life or send questions to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
