Alison’s work experience includes thirteen years in human resource consulting. Since leaving full-time work, Alison discovered her passion for volunteer work in the education field. She has served on the board at the Growing Place, a non-profit early childhood education center, for the past six years and co-chaired their site’s annual fundraiser for two years. She has two children at Grant Elementary, one in kindergarten and one in second grade. At Grant, she has been involved in many fundraising events, including co-chairing the Donation Committee for the Annual Spring Auction. She continues to expand her volunteer role at Grant, and she is excited to be involved in fundraising and communications at the school district level through her new role on the SMMEF Board.
