My name is Alyssa Bowen, and I was raised in Durant, Oklahoma. I currently live here with my husband, Ryan, assistant baseball coach at Southeastern Oklahoma State University. I am the daughter of Wes and Penny Lovell, and I have two brothers along with a large extended family, most of who reside in this area.
I graduated from Durant High School in 2009 and went on to receive a Bachelor’s degree in Creative Writing and Journalism from the University of Arkansas in 2013. After completing my undergraduate degree, I accepted a short-term position teaching English in Italy where I spent every spare moment exploring many of the wonderful cities Europe has to offer. Since returning home, I have been employed at REI Oklahoma, where I work as a Housing Program Specialist.
Growing up with a father interested in architecture and home design, I developed an early love for all things related, which eventually led to my interest in the real estate business. I am so excited to have this opportunity to serve my friends of Durant and the Bryan County area, with all their real estate needs. As the granddaughter of a former Bryan County Commissioner and with a family whose roots in Durant go back over a century, I am familiar with the area and the people that live here and look forward to applying this knowledge to my work in real estate.
I am an active member of Voca Baptist Church in Caney, Oklahoma, and in my spare time, I enjoy reading, writing, traveling, watching baseball, and spending time with my family, including my two dogs and one cat.
