Allison is from Los Angeles, California where she graduated from CSU Northridge with a BS in Global Supply Chain Management and a minor in Economics. While in school, she worked in many fields such as transportation planning, international affairs, economic development, and public policy. During her 2019-2020 service as a Peace Corps Mongolia health education volunteer, she became interested in the connections between sustainable agriculture, environmental health, and public health, which led her to pursue work in organic farming, environmental conservation, and food systems development. Now, Allison joins the 29th cohort of Emerson Fellows to work towards building a more sustainable, resilient, and equitable food system.
