Allison shares her story with diverse audiences nationally and internationally. As a young woman leader of color, growing up as first in her family to attend college, her story from Queens, NY to doctoral research and leading an all girls 6-12 school in Astoria NY, urges us to cultivate trust and start with yourself.  She explores her own errors, and the  experience of  the true path to innovation, con­nection, and authenticity. Allison shows how a meager beginning does not determine your final destination. In her enlightening, relatable, and real talks, Allison shows us that trust, like energy can be destroyed or created and work in ways that are crucial to the success of a collaborative and innovative organization.
