Alyssa Vance, IIDA, has been selected as one of the Top 20 Under 40 by the Amarillo Chamber of Commerce. The Top 20 Under 40 recipients for 2022 were recognized at the annual banquet on August 25.
“I start each project with fresh eyes, fresh ideas, and thoughtful consideration of the client,” Alyssa said. “It’s important to me to have a full understanding of the project’s purpose and community impact before ever having a design thought. Design is not a one size fits all. I lead with my natural instinct, and my objectives always remain the same: every space needs to be maintainable, inviting, comfortable, and reflect the heart and soul of our client.”
Professional excellence is just one area Alyssa has been recognized for with the Top 20 Under 40 Award. The award also recognizes individuals who have brought value to the community both professionally and personally and who have displayed an overall commitment to Amarillo through community service.

Alyssa joined Parkhill in 2014 and has interior design expertise in a variety of fields, including healthcare, corporate, religious, and education markets, in addition to her higher education experience. She has extensive experience in furniture specifications and planning.
