Allison is originally from Des Moines, Iowa, but has called Omaha home for the past fifteen years. She has four girls (Emma age 8, Addy and Lily age 5, and Leia age 3). Allison attended Creighton University for her Bachelors and Masters degrees and earned her doctorate in Educational Leadership from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. She teaches leaderships courses at Nebraska Methodist College. Her passion, both personally and professionally, is diversity, equity, and inclusion work. When not working or hanging out with kiddos, Allison enjoys reading, thinking about (but rarely implementing) home projects, and taking walks around the block by herself without pushing a stroller or a bike up a hill!
