Founder + CEO
Our fearless leader has her fair share of social media, marketing and foodie experience. After working in marketing for several years, Alyssa Fagien saw a need in the market for something new. Social media allows businesses to connect with their audience on a more personal, meaningful and consistent basis, but many do not have the time nor the resources to implement proper strategy. In 2017, Alyssa launched Atlys Media with the goal of building stronger communities for the businesses she represented. She is also the founder of the popular local Instagram account ATL Bucket List. She has been able to use the knowledge she has gained from growing that Instagram account to better serve her clients.
