Allison graduated Magna Cum Laude from William Paterson University with a Bachelor of Science in Environmental Sustainability and a minor in Geography. During her undergraduate studies, she worked as Lead Research Assistant on a National Science Foundation-funded project. Allison played a key role in orchestrating The Green League, a sustainability club dedicated to environmental education and improving the campus through green efforts. The Green League and Restore Native Plants quickly partnered together to start a garden on the college campus, introducing multiple volunteer opportunities.
After graduating, Allison went on to mentor and work with teens at the Secaucus Next Generation Community Leaders and The Lindsey Meyer Teen Institute, cultivating young leaders in environmental outreach. Discovering her passion for park audit projects and teaching environmental lessons, she brings strong awareness for park restoration to each person she meets. Allison joined the team of Restore Native Plants with goals and aspirations of mapping out the Ramapo State Forest.
The passion Allison witnesses each day by those involved with Restore Native Plants has been unparalleled. Each morning Allison wakes up, with excitement to be involved with a movement that contributes positively to the world.
