Ally was raised in the south before escaping to Kansan heartland. Having worked as staff in numerous campaigns from presidential campaigns to city council races, she says she likes the smaller campaigns the best. Today, she guides youth based organizations to major funders across the country and works as an event coordinator and fund raiser for the candidates the private foundation she works for supports. Ally also has a personal site.
Ally advocates her passions: faith, young progressive democracy, and expressing them all through new media. She has guest lectured for several training programs as well as university communications classes and campaigns and elections lectures. She's always happy to talk to fellow young people about elections, organizing, and new media.
Stemming from her strongly held beliefs and devout faith, Ally's concerns include global human rights and the ever increasing wage disparity in the US. Her long-term goal is to save the world.
