Alissa Trinei was born and raised in Sebastopol, once known as the apple capital of the world. After finding it necessary in 2013 to get back to her roots and move into an industry she truly believed in, she was able to leave her career in education to follow her passion in agriculture. Now the Marketing Specialist at Manzana Products Co., Inc, the last apple cannery in northern California, Alissa brings an exceptional level of knowledge and passion overseeing the marketing strategies for both the company as well as their own North Coast Organic brand. Alissa sees and considers local apple growers as part of the family and is driven by the need to keep orchards planted in Sonoma County.
While not at work, Alissa still enjoys spending time in the orchards watching what beautiful and inspiring changes are taking place. She also takes pride in her own organic farming practices at home, and enjoys anything outdoors relating to camping, hiking, running, and paddle boarding. Indoors you can find her creating recipes for the brand, crocheting, cuddling kitties, and working on her yoga practice. Alissa also volunteers as a Delivery Angel for the Ceres Community Project, an organization very close to her heart.
