About Alissa Carlos-Doucette
Alissa’s love for lighting was spawned by her early studies in interior design. While a student, she worked in a small lighting showroom in Walnut Creek. After spending the next 25 years in the lighting industry, her passion for lighting and design has not waned. In 2005, Alissa became a Certified Lighting Consultant (CLC) professional with the American Lighting Association and has worked in all facets of lighting.
We were fortunate to add Alissa to the Lighting Systems team in 2017 as part of the Project Quotations team. Today, as the Technical Support Manager, Alissa works closely with the sales team to provide clients with specification assistance, quotations, technical support, and exceptional customer service.
A Bay area native, Alissa spent many a weekend with her brother and father in Golden Gate Park, visiting the Academy of Sciences, hanging out at the Marin Headlands, and watching sport bikes race at Sears Point.
In her free time, Alissa enjoys spending time with her dog, Cali, and family. Her hobbies include driving & modifying her Camaro, travel, music, and Dharma studies.
