She is diplomatic, an effective communicator, a problem solver, a relationship builder, and brings value to any leadership team. 

Allison has a passion for teaching and sharing information technology concepts with the youth in the community. She owns and operates two businesses: Aheart Management Firm, a business assistance firm, and Gorgeous Geeks, which is an IT Services Company. She obtained a Bachelor’s degree in Business Information Systems from Virginia Commonwealth University and an MBA in Global Management from the University of Phoenix.

In her spare time she enjoys spending time with her son, volunteering and serving for Speaking Spirit Ministries, spreading the Gospel and the message that “the Kingdom of God is at hand”, mentoring the youth, and helping others. She believes that all of her talents and gifts are a blessing from God.  She follows the “Each One, Reach One, Teach One” principle and her life mottos are “Knowledge is Power” and “Teamwork Makes the Dream Work”.

Allison believes that all too often the children in our community are at a disadvantage as a result of socioeconomic conditions. Possessing computer skills in today’s world is an absolute necessity, not to mention a valuable skill to have. Her association with BDPA has provided her the opportunity to provide solutions to this problem via the SITES and STEM.    Allison was a candidate for national BDPA vice president earlier this year.   She shared her thoughts on that opportunity as well as BDPA in the following video:

Allison's Favorite Scripture: "Seek ye first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all things will be added unto you." Matthew 6:33
