Allison is an independent audio and podcast producer based in Brooklyn, NY. Her current project is a new podcast called Bodies. 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.
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 raised in the land of Old Bay. And after graduating from Princeton University, she taught English in northern Thailand, 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, cooking, being outside, and choreographed dancing to Robyn.
