Allison is a three-time Emmy-nominated journalist with a decade of experience in media. She has covered major national stories like the aftermath of the Charlottesville "Unite the Right" rally and President Trump's "travel ban" in the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals.
She became a journalist to speak for the voiceless, like her severely disabled sister, and uses her platform to shed light on important issues that affect people with disabilities and other vulnerable and disenfranchised communities. She won a Catalyst for Change award from the ARC of Virginia for the impact of her reporting and an Emmy nomination for an investigation exposing neglect and abuse at an assisted living facility. Allison also co-founded a production company, BirdMine, in 2020 with the goal of amplifying underrepresented and underserved communities.
Her goal as a journalist is to leave the world a better place by spreading hope through her work while ensuring the truth is always told, and wrongdoing is exposed.
