Tryssa is originally from Brazil, grew up in Miami, then came to Gainesville for college. She is quite passionate about her calling as a Financial Advisor, because as a child she saw first-hand how a lack of guidance and financial planning can affect a family for generations. Tryssa made it her personal mission that her career be focused on providing financial guidance, graduating from the University of Florida with a degree in finance in 2008. She has also devoted much time and energy in acquiring multiple investment licenses over the years.
Tryssa is very involved with the local community and with her church. Trilingual with Spanish, Portuguese and English, she has served numerous times as a translator and volunteer on medical and dental mission trips in the indigenous villages of the Amazon Basin. Tryssa is married to her high school sweetheart, Johnny and they have two little girls. In her spare time she loves being out on the water, listening to audiobooks and spending time with family.
