About Me

After school, you can catch her working at the Sacred Heart School after-school program. In her free time, Allison enjoys spending time with her family, hanging out with friends, and going to Joe Sippers. Her future plans include attending Lake Land College for two years, then to transfer to a university to possibly major in business.

“I am very honored to be apart of the CEO class of 2020. From developing my own business, to meeting many professional individuals, I will gain so much knowledge not only about our community, but myself. I am excited to see how much I have changed over these upcoming months. I believe if you have the opportunity to take the CEO class, you should definitely take that leap and get out of your comfort zone!”

About My Business
