Allie smiles at the camera wearing a shirt with the Disability Dame logo.

Allie is a marketing and accessibility consultant dedicated to solving challenges in the disability community. With an extensive career in marketing and past clients like Colgate, Coppertone, Degree, and Vanderbilt University, Allie helps brands create adaptive solutions that both resonate and work for people with disabilities. 

After acquiring a physical disability at 26-years-old from a rare, chronic illness, Allie quickly realized the gap in the market for accessible products. She draws experience from her previous marketing career and her lived experience with a physical disability.

She currently serves on the board of directors for the Tennessee Disability Coalition, is the dexterity impairment lead at Open Inclusion’s U.S. division and is a 2021 graduate of the Partners in Policymaking Institute. She’s been featured in Success Magazine, Conde Nast Traveller, The Tennessean, Axios, and many more.
