Allison is the creator, host and producer of Bodies podcast. Each episode of this documentary series begins as a medical mystery. But once you peel back the layers, more questions emerge. Bodies is made with support from KCRW's Independent Producer Project. Bodies was Webby-nominated for Best Documentary and has been named a top podcast of 2018 by HuffPost, Bello Collective, Spotify, Elle, and more.
Allison got her start in podcasting as the host and producer of The Intern, a critically acclaimed, first-person narrative documentary about navigating the startup world at betaworks and living in NYC.
She was born and raised in Maryland. And after graduating from Princeton University, she taught English in northern Thailand with Princeton in Asia, then returned to the States to teach 10th grade in the Bronx. Allison also helped to launch a women’s health education non-profit in India called Pasand. She studied writing and multimedia at the Salt Institute for Documentary Studies.
Allison loves biking everywhere she goes, running, cooking, being outside, and choreographed dancing to Robyn.
