Alissa De La Riva, Senior Compliance Specialist

Alissa discovered her passion for excessive paper work and ever changing rules and regulations as an underwriter during her seven year tenure working for a wholesale lender. Prior to joining the DHWC team, Alissa was a compliance specialist at another local firm where she managed client accounts, trained new employees and helped to improve the work flow within the office. Alissa loves puzzles; so naturally, she and compliance are soul mates. She also enjoys that the compliance world is ever changing- no set routines here! In her off time, she believes that having fun is just as important as working hard and is all for laughing at yourself and life’s absurdities.
