Personal History

Allison began this position in December 2011, but has been at UD in Campus Ministry since 2007, all the while planning and coordinating retreats and faith communities and loving it. Prior to her return to UD, Allison was a campus minister at Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa. She’s originally from the Milwaukee area and remains a loyal Brewers and Packers fan. She has a BFA from Xavier University in visual art, and an MA from UD in Pastoral Ministry, which she completed while working in Campus Ministry as well from 2003-2005. Allison was also a Jesuit Volunteer in Anchorage, AK from 2002-2003.

When Allison isn’t in the office or on retreat she can often be found studying with a cup of coffee from the Blend (she’s working on her PhD in Higher Education at UD), or watching sports. College basketball, professional football, major league baseball, and the Olympics are her favorites. She is also a runner and triathlete and is often training for a marathons or other distance events.
