Since promoting backyard performances by the neighborhood kids in her native Ringwood, New Jersey, Allison has been in the business of event marketing. As an art history major, her passion for cultural connections and visual communication was cemented. A career in marketing Atlanta’s cultural institutions transitioned post-MBA to business-to-business brand marketing with an emphasis on conferences and events as engines of prosperity. She is excited to channel this experience into her volunteer work. Allison is an aunt to five and is slowly but surely transforming her yard in Decatur into a productive organic landscape to provide learning experiences for her family as well as sustenance for pollinators and people.
