A Chicago native, Allie earned her B.A. from Northern Michigan University in hospitality management in 2007 before returning to Chicago to begin a career in hotel/restaurant management and event planning. She currently works in Admissions and Marketing for Morgan Park Academy, a small, independent school on the city’s Southside. She is a certified Barre Fitness instructor and has been teaching since 2016, and is a registered yoga teacher (200 level) through Yoga Alliance. And she just started her 300-hour training! In her free time, she’s an honorary board member for the non-profit cleft lip and palate organization, Smile Train, receiving “volunteering family of the year” in May 2019. She loves to cook, bake, enjoy the outdoors, and spend time with her three boys Mylo, Conrad, and Jed.
