    Alison grew up in Marblehead and attended Marblehead Public Schools. After graduating from Syracuse University she lived (and worked) in a number of other states and countries. Ultimately, she settled back in Marblehead where she works as a Senior Manager of Customer Success and plays taxi for her son with his seemingly never-ending activities. More often than not, their polar bear sized dog is in tow. Having managed multi-million dollar projects and implementations, her focus on detailed planning and attention to detail comes from her training as a Civil Engineer. Her desire for transparency and accountability stem from more than a decade of building successful customer management divisions. Alison was elected to the School Committee in June 2022 and will serve as Secretary for FY22-23. Her term expires in June 2025.
