Love Shack Boutique has won numerous awards: Winning both The San Antonio Express-News & The SA Flavor Best Fiesta Medal for 2015 and 2016. We were honored by The University of Texas-San Antonio Business Development Center, as a Small Business Leader in the areas of job creation and business development. We have received Gold Certification from ReWorks SA for our recycling efforts. I was honored by receiving the Inspiration Award from The San Antonio Hispanic Chamber of Commerce at their Annual Women’s Awards Luncheon “Making a Mark on the World” – Women who Inspire, Innovate and Impact the World Around Us. The most exciting award we have received is being voted as the # 1 Adult Store by The San Antonio Current’s Best of San Antonio, for the past nine years in a row. This high honor is thrilling and humbling because it was made possible by my great employees, and especially, our fantastic and supportive customers. Without our customers, my business would NOT exist.

I am a certified sex educator through the American College of Sexologists. I also have a B.A. from The University of Texas-San Antonio (UTSA).  As a business owner and active community member, I am a professional associate of the following organizations:  The National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO)-San Antonio Chapter, I currently serve on the Board of Directors for The San Antonio Women’s Chamber of Commerce.  Statesman and member of The Alamo Ranch / 151 Business Association and a member of The Helotes Area Chamber of Commerce.  I am also a co-founder for the women’s networking group, Women and Wine on Wednesdays.

My hope is that you will visit Love Shack Boutique, experience the difference, and see why our customers have made us # 1.

Manager

Alyssa has been working at Love Shack Boutique since 2014. You can say she is a staple member of the Love Shack Boutique. While working at The Shack, Alyssa acquired an Associates in Liberal Arts from Northwest Vista College. Throughout the years, Alyssa has become knowledgeable about adult vibrators and other various products in the Adult Industry. The best part of her job is the opportunity to be an advocate for sexual health. A lot of people may not know what they are looking for, and that’s okay. With the knowledge she has obtained, she navigates customers toward products that align with their sexual needs/wants. You can call her your local sexual health guru.
