Allison is an Ashland native, AHS grad, and Ashland University alum (2006) with a bachelor's degree in Commercial Art and Graphic Design with an Affiliate Program Certificate from The Art Institute of Pittsburgh. Since graduation Allison has been working as a professional graphic designer and contracting for a number of small businesses, non-profits, and individuals. Her experience with a variety of industries allows her to offer Spire's clients a customized approach to meet their specific design needs. She enjoys design challenges and loves working collaboratively. Shaped by a long-time background in music and fine art, Allison undertakes her design work with depth, purpose, and intention.
Outside of the office, Allison is passionate about women’s ministry and attends Park Street Brethren Church with her family. She is an avid family record keeper and historian, eager to Nancy-Drew herself into new genealogical mysteries and helps others discover their own ancestral stories. As a long-time print designer, she may or may not have made family tree flashcards for her children to learn about their heritage. And may or may not drag them to cemeteries and courthouses.
Allison and her husband Jason met at church camp, became friends, and decided life was better together! They have two school-age children, Miles and Clementine, and a frustrating but lovable mini-dachshund named Golly. Together they love attending Cleveland Indians baseball games, visiting their wonderful families in Ohio, Virginia, and Maryland, and eating crabs out of the Chesapeake Bay.Back to Staff
