Allison grew up outside of Chicago, Illinois, and moved to Florida as a teen. She enjoys never having to deal with snow anymore, even if that means riding out the occasional hurricane.
Since working briefly in the copyright department for a music publisher she has spent the last 20 years as a bookkeeper for a country club, dabbling on the side in graphic and web design. She has always been interested in writing and editing, so she made a career change and joined Reportex in 2019 as a proofreader.
Allison has always been passionate about animals and volunteers for her local humane society to help socialize the cats and kittens. She has always had a love of music, playing the piano and clarinet through college. Allison is an avid reader who is fascinated by ancient history. She also loves to travel — she has been to Egypt, visited Paris three times and hopes to one day see Pompeii.
Some of her other interests include trivia, genealogy, photography, watching far too much TV, knitting and playing video games. She lives in Florida with her family and three cats.
She is obsessed with the colour purple (the actual colour, not the movie/book).
