Tower Girl USD Profile – Alyssa Gallagher

Alyssa - Tower Girl

Name: Alyssa Gallagher – University of San Diego ’12
Age: 22

Bio:  I grew up in Billings, Montana, so I am of course a small-town country girl at heart. I am the only girl in a family of two boys, and I am right in the middle.  I grew up in the out doors, fishing, hiking, boating, water-skiing, snow-sking, you name it. I knew I wanted to live in California since I was little girl, and have lived here for the past 3 and a half years.  Dancing and painting are my two biggest passions.  I have been a dancer since I could walk, anything from ballet to hip hop.  I also played Volleyball in high school.  I was able to spend a semester abroad in Italy painting.  I hope to one day be a professor at a University.

Major/Minor: Accounting, Minor in Economics

Activities: Study Abroad in Florence, Italy,  Gamma Phi Beta Sorority, USD Dance Company, USD Alcala Club, University Ministry, USD Spirit Team, Accounting Tutor, Dance Instructor.

Interest in paddle boarding: My interest in paddle boarding began in the past year, when I was looking for something unique to do while also getting a great work out in!  Paddle boarding is full body workout that strengthens you, gives you a great cardio work out, while also improving balance.  Its the perfect blend of working out while also being in a tranquil, beautiful environment right on the water.

Interest in beach: My friend and I live right on the beach, so it has become a huge part of my life. Ever since I was little I have loved playing in the waves, body-boarding, wakeboarding in the bay, anything involving water.  The beach has the ability to bring out a calmness in people that most things can’t.  The sound of those waves, the rippling tide, in never fails to make people stop and just breath and take it in.


What you love about San Diego:  I am in love with this city! I grew up with a small-town up-bringing in Montana, which I love, but it is so much different than San Diego.  San Diego is the perfect balance of beautiful beaches, a laid back healthy and active lifestyle, with fun nightlife and amazing restaurants.

Interest in paddle boarding:
I think paddle boarding is a great workout and is awesome for surfers because it is an activity they can do whether the waves are big or small.

Interest in beach:
I could never live a way from the beach and the type of people the beach attracts. In my opinion, the closer you get to the beach, the happier the people are and no matter what I am going through it always seems to be the perfect remedy.

What you love about San Diego:
I love that San Diego is a perfect balance of beach life and city life. You never run out of things to do here. There is great beaches, a great nightlife (shout out to the BEACHCOMBER), job opportunities, schools, shopping, restaurants, parks… you can’t go wrong here.

Tower Girl Meghan

Meghan - Tower Girl

Name: Meghan Murphy – University of San Diego Class of 2012

Age: 21

Bio: I am a senior at the University of San Diego, originally from Chicago, and I am majoring in Communications with a minor in English Lit. I was drawn all the way from Chi-City by San Diego’s energetic atmosphere, eclectic people, and vividly expressive fashion! I am also an avid artist (self-proclaimed) and San Diego is the perfect place to observe a whirlwind of artistic inspiration.

Activities: I studied abroad in fall 2010 in Madrid, Spain. I am a member of the Gamma Phi Beta sorority. I write for College Fashionista as a style guru and I write my blog Quips of Expression.

Interest in paddle boarding: I love paddle boarding because it is an all-around workout, triggering nearly every muscle group in my body, and it is also a peaceful/ relaxing activity.

Interest in beach: While we all know that some Vitamin D is good for us, the beach is more like an addiction to me. The beach is a playground, a perfect place for reading, and ultimately soothing; I love being able to hear the ocean from my house!

Tower Girl Profile – Jenna


Jenna - Tower Girl

Name: Jenna Catalona

Age: 25

City you live in: Denver, Colorado

Bio: I’m originally from Kent, Ohio, went to college there also. I graduated from Kent State with a degree in marketing and decided to move to Denver to start a career. I have moved around the US a lot, living in Cali for a little, Denver, finished school in Ohio, and then decided to come back to Denver. I absolutely love to travel, and spent the summer of 2010 in Paris studying French, eating lots of weird cheese, and drinking too much wine. I am currently single, and enjoying the freedom and discovering new places and meeting new people. I have two fantastically fluffy felines, and a little dog named Ruby. Animals, traveling, and French are three things I am most passionate about in my life. If I could find a job to include all three of those, I’d be the happiest girl in the world, but in the meantime I am looking to work for non-profit, ideally with an environmental and wildlife awareness focus. I am blessed, and lucky to have a beautiful family and the most wonderful group of friends. C’est la vie!

Interest in paddleboarding: I tried paddleboarding for the first time when I was visiting my friend Amy in San Diego. She took me out and I instantly got hooked! I had always wanted to try paddleboarding and was so excited when I got the opportunity. Next time I visit the coast, you’d better believe I’ll be out on a board!

Interest in the beach: There is something about walking up to the beach after you haven’t seen it for a year that almost brings tears to my eyes. Corny? I don’t even care! There is a peace, a serenity, and a calming effect that the ocean has on me, and it seems as though so many of my stresses are lifted. When I look out into the ocean, I feel humbled by how HUGE it is, and how small we all really are. Now besides all that DEEP stuff, I love the the smells (coconut oil, margaritas, and salt water), the sounds (all the seagulls and waves crashing) and the sun most of all. I come from an extremely cloudy part of the US, so the sun is like GOLD to me! I love everything about the beach. I could spend all day, every day on the beach. Not to mention, it’s a guaranteed good hair day, everyday.
