After starting to shadow nearby chiropractors, Dr. Alyssa Hickey made the decision to pursue her studies at King's College in Wilkes Barre, Pennsylvania, where she graduated with a bachelor's degree in biology and a minor in neuroscience. She continued to serve others while she was employed at King's by planning and taking part in numerous volunteer events and joining AmeriCorps. Additionally, Alyssa was actively involved in the school community. She served as the class representative, president of the biology club, and secretary of the neuroscience club.
After completing her studies at King's College, she relocated to Seneca Falls, New York, where she enrolled at New York Chiropractic College. Shortly into her education, she began to have increased enthusiasm for learning more about women’s health, specifically in treating pregnant women and children. Alyssa gained further education on her interest by submerging herself in related courses, clubs, and seminars including Pediatric Radiology, Pregnancy and Pediatric Nutrition, Women’s Health Care Issues, and Clinical Pediatrics Chiropractic Care.
