Hi, I’m Alison.

I strive to bring words to life that dri­ve action. Guid­ed by a pas­sion for hon­est and cap­ti­vat­ing data-dri­ven jour­nal­ism, I aim to ele­vate mar­gin­al­ized per­spec­tives, estab­lish trust, and cre­ate a tan­gi­ble impact. I envi­sion a career expos­ing injus­tice, wher­ev­er it lies, as an inves­tiga­tive reporter.

Through my work at the Con­necti­cut Health Inves­tiga­tive Team, The Dai­ly Cam­pus and The Mon­roe Sun, I tell inti­mate sto­ries that bal­ance human con­nec­tion with com­pelling sta­tis­tics and pho­tographs. Along with my jour­nal­ism train­ing from the Uni­ver­si­ty of Con­necti­cut, I allow my addi­tion­al edu­ca­tion in soci­ol­o­gy and women, gen­der and sex­u­al­i­ty stud­ies to inform my reporting.

I am a com­mu­nica­tive team play­er and cre­ative prob­lem solver who works well with peo­ple and num­bers. As a researcher, I am com­mit­ted, time­ly and inde­pen­dent. When some­thing piques my inter­ests, I find time to pur­sue new avenues and see where they lead. I am excit­ed to explore oppor­tu­ni­ties and advance my career.
