Allison joined the Solomon Foundation in 2019. She brings experience working in the nonprofit, private, higher education and public sector in Seattle, Boston, and the United Kingdom. In addition to being a fair and foul weather bike commuter and regularly cycling from Boston to Wellesley, when she’s not cycling, Allison enjoys exploring paths while running, finding ponds and lakes to swim in, and navigating hiking trails in and out of state, all fueled by her encyclopedic knowledge of New England’s bakeries and ice cream shops.
