Hello! My name is Anyssa Coverston and I was born and raised in sunny Miami, Florida. I attended the University of Central Florida in Orlando, FL and graduated in 2014 with a B.S. in Forensic Science and a minor degree in Dance. I worked as a Fingerprint Analyst at the Miami-Dade Police Department: Forensic Services Bureau since 2015 but decided it was time to pursue higher education and see what other opportunities are out there.

Penn State’s Forensic Science program felt like the right fit for me from the moment I stepped on campus. I very much appreciate the hands-on, individualized attention that cannot be easily found with larger programs. In my spare time, I enjoy taking ballet and contemporary dance classes (which I’ve been doing since the age of 4) and doing various craft projects. I have even considered opening my own wedding craft shop in the future!
