Allison grew up in a small town 45 minutes north of Boston. She developed an interest in education while studying at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, where she received a B.A. in communications with a minor in early childhood education.
After graduation she taught preschool but later decided to pursue a career in public relations and communications, earning an M.S. in advertising from Boston University in 2009. Allison has worked for numerous Boston-area nonprofits, most recently Girl Scouts of Eastern Massachusetts. As the Marketing and Communications Director, Allison combines her diverse communications experience with her education background to support Stand’s child-focused mission and promote the great work the organization does in Massachusetts.
When not working you can find Allison hiking mountains in New Hampshire, on the beach, or walking her Chocolate Labrador Bailey.
