Allison came to the Foundation in 2016 after a small gig in Florida, where she worked in attractions at the Walt Disney World Resort. Before her Florida adventures, she graduated magna cum laude from East Carolina University in 2015 with a Bachelors in Fine Arts, concentrating in Illustration. Allison, a native North Carolinian, was happy to move back to her home state to work with Kids in Parks. Though trading the coast for the mountains was quite the change. However, she has adapted to mountain life in Asheville by hiking with her dog, Hera, and partaking in the weekend brunch scene. When indoors, Allison enjoys cartooning. And she is a big fan of birds, film scores, and Star Wars.
