Allysa Metzner
Marketing & Writing Intern

Allysa is the Spring writing and communications intern at Local First. She is a Senior at Calvin College studying Writing and Literature. Like many, she believes the winter months are best for frequenting coffee shops, eating comfort foods (there is nothing like Chez Olga's on a frigid day,) and reading big books. But she can’t help dreaming of the summer and the delicious vegetables she gets from her CSA share. Allysa enjoys the finer things in life, which is why she loves all things local. Recently, she has been especially excited about the new GR Bagel location in Eastown.
