Meet the TMS Team - Alyssa Sagarese

Apr 09 2015


We are pleased to introduce you to another member of our TMS Team. Today you'll meet Alyssa Sagarese, Loan Servicing Specialist at The Money Source.

Alyssa works at our main office in Melville, NY and has been here since September of 2014. Alyssa's sister works here at TMS and heard only good and positive things about being a part of the team. She loves how caring and understanding everyone is and how she has room to grow her professional career.

Alyssa loves to spend her time away from work outside. From hiking to biking to going to the beach, she does it all. She also has a small side business of making henna tattoos for events like birthdays and weddings.

The biggest inspiration in her life is her Grandma. In her 106 years of life, she has lived through so much - two wars, the invention of modern technology and so much more. She is such a caring and loving person, Alyssa strives to be just like her.

Other fun facts about Alyssa:

  • Favorite Candy: She loves any and all types of candy!
  • Favorite Book: Any Chuck Palahniuk book, especially Lullaby
  • Favorite Take-Out Restaurant: Anything sushi

Thank you to Alyssa for sharing a little about herself!
