After spending more than a decade in nonprofit management, and most of her professional career advocating on behalf of individuals with severe health conditions, she now represents Moore’s advocacy team in Louisiana and Mississippi markets.

Allison has a passion for advancing an organization’s goals to achieve its mission.

"I’ve had a passion for advocacy from the very beginning. I want to use my voice for those who cannot.”

She works tirelessly on behalf of common-sense policies on a state and federal level. Her knack for assisting businesses and community organizations in advancing their strategic goals stems from her ability to bring their visions to life.

Before joining Moore, Allison was executive director of Epilepsy Alliance Louisiana. There, she increased its budget by 88 percent with sustainable funding and raised more than $1 million for epilepsy services. As a board member of the organization, her plans include continuing to volunteer and to teach the importance of advocacy on a local, state and federal level, empowering communities to use their voices.

She has a Bachelor of Business Administration degree from the University of Mississippi and is pursuing a Master of Business Administration degree from Louisiana State University Shreveport.

Born and raised in New Orleans, Allison resides in the city with her partner, William. On the weekends, you can find them visiting with friends and family, perfecting the tomato sauce they recently learned how to make in Italy and planning their next bucket-list trip.
