Alyssa Rowan | Human Resources Coordinator

During a week-long shadowing program with La Hacienda’s Human Resources department, Alyssa Rowan so impressed the team that they asked her to apply for Human Resources Coordinator.

“I fell in love with the place. I knew they were good at what they do, and I wanted to learn from them. So I said, why not?”

Joining La Hacienda is a return to her roots for Alyssa. Born in Houston, she attended and graduated from Kerrville’s Tivy High School. Her original career plan was to study nursing. Then she discovered she often became “too attached at the heart” to patients in her care. She decided to switch to Business Management, a degree she earned in 2023 from Texas Tech.

“I like helping people and treating people. Now I get to work for a business that still helps people and still treats people, where I can be of service in the background.”

Her duties as Human Resources Coordinator include maintaining employee files, assisting with new employee orientation, tracking training, and “assisting in whatever they need to do.” In her free time, Alyssa enjoys reading and working with clay.

Alyssa is impressed with the way La Hacienda performs its mission.

“The people here always try to do the right thing, even if it takes extra effort. Having been here for decades, the organization has a record of adhering to high morals and treating employees well.”

Her goal is to keep learning “as much as I can,” and continue to grow as a professional.

“I want to stay as long as I can. I’m here to learn, and I’m here to help in any way.”
