Prior to joining Ed Trust, Alison served as an AmeriCorps member at College Bound STL, a college access organization that serves the students of the greater St. Louis area. To pursue her graduate degree in public policy at Vanderbilt, Allison relocated to Nashville, where she also works for the Martha O’Bryan Center, supporting students with their post-secondary plans, whatever they may be.
Favorite Sports Team: Have to represent my STL Cards and Blues
What are people most surprised to learn about you?: That I have shaved my head a couple of times
What drew you to education? While working with a college access organization, I found a passion for educational equity as I supported students in navigating a system that is not inherently built for them. I know that I want to contribute to a positive change in the system, whether that is on a local, state, or federal level.
