Alison grew up in Bend, Oregon and moved across the country to upstate New York to attend Bard College. While in school, she studied Human Rights and Latin American studies and worked as an English tutor for migrant farm workers in the community. She also had the opportunity to study abroad in Oaxaca, Mexico.
Alison loves to travel and finds cultural exchange to be extremely important and rewarding. She believes that families and loved ones should not have to be separated by borders and that people should be able to live and work where they can have the best life and make the biggest impact.
Before becoming Operations Manager, Alison worked as an immigration paralegal at Passage for two years and therefore has a solid understanding of the legal system as well as the inner workings of the business. Alison is passionate about doing business for good and working with a socially responsible company.
When she’s not working, Alison enjoys drinking matcha, reading, needle felting, planning trips, and taking photos of dogs she sees on the street.
