Alisha started her career with McCormick and Schmick’s in San Jose. Although she was only looking for a job to balance her finances while in college, Alisha found herself working for a general manager she respected and decided to take on more responsibility. This began her path into management. Over time, a home in San Jose no longer felt right. Alisha and her cat, Dinah, moved to Portland in 2011, hoping to find a city that reflected her values of conservation, small business and the arts. When not at Ecliptic, Alisha is usually gardening with her fiancé, two kitties: Dinah and Grizby, and Welch Corgi: Lelou (full name Lelou Dallas Multipass).
