Allison joined the WTAJ team as a multi-media journalist in the DuBois Bureau.
Born and raised in Erie, she’s excited to be back reporting in her home state!
Allison’s journalism career began in Mankato, Minnesota where she was a reporter for KEYC News 12.
She graduated summa cum laude from the E.W. Scripps School of Journalism at Ohio University in May 2017 (Go Bobcats!). In college, she was involved with WOUB, the on-campus PBS station, as a reporter, producer and weather anchor. She also interned at her hometown station, WJET, for two summers.
In her spare time, Allison can be found crafting, sewing… or rewatching the Harry Potter movies for the 1000th time.
