Allyson joined The College of Global Studies in 2018. She is a graduate of The Ohio State University where she received a B.S. in International Studies: World Economy & Business in 2016. During her time there she studied abroad at Richmond, The American International University in London. 

Allyson's passion for travel originated from a service trip to the Dominican Republic (DR) in 2010 where she aided in the construction of an elementary school and taught English to the students. Since then, she's participated in two other service trips to the DR and has visited a total of 11 countries. These experiences were life-changing for her and she hopes to inspire others to pursue international opportunities as well.
