What do you wish more people knew about Allison+Partners?
That we’re global now!
What did you want to be when you grew up?
An actress! I used to do lots of stage stuff, and studied at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts. I had a few close brushes with the silver screen, but obviously it wasn’t meant to be.
What do you love about your job?
That no two days are the same, the guarantee that the hard work will pay off, and that many of my incredible colleagues have become good friends.
What’s your biggest success?
Fulfilling my longtime dream of travelling around the world alone. It was a lot of hard work to save money over the course of several years and then to plan a trip to 18 countries in seven months, including challenging places like Africa and India.
