About Allison

I am a candidate for Vermont House of Representatives for district CHI-25 Westford and East Milton. I am a native Vermonter with generations of Vermont farmers in my family and my husband Joe and I are raising our son here. Though I was born in Brattleboro, I grew up in Southern NH. I attended Northfield Mount Hermon in Massachusetts and then left the north for Mary Washington College in VA. After graduating in 2003 with a BS in biology, I moved to Burlington and got a job at Endyne Inc in Williston. I worked in this environmental testing facility for seven years before taking a job at UVMMC in the pathology lab. My four years there taught me a lot about the healthcare system. I left the workforce briefly to have my son and be a stay-at-home mom. Our son was only two when my husband and I bought our farm and I started a small horse boarding business. Before our son began kindergarten and right at the start of COVID I started my second business as a fitness trainer. We have also decided to diversify and expand our farm this year by purchasing and raising pigs which will hopefully open up new possibilities for us in the future.

As I stated above, I have deep ties in Vermont and my family goes back generations here. My grandmother was born in Westford. When my grandparents first got married they lived in Milton. They were dairy farmers and the Northern Vermont landscape is dotted with the farms that they worked. My great great great grandfather's name is on the Westford Civil War memorial. This area is where generations of my family is from and where I have decided to make my home. I look forward to representing these two great towns in Montpelier.

I decided to run for office because of some frustrations with the school system and my understanding through discussions with the superintendent that much is done regarding schools and how they operate at the state level. I’m also increasingly saddened by the stories of people moving away from our beautiful state because of the high cost of living and tax burden. What the legislature has been doing is not working for Vermonters and there needs to be more balance in Montpelier.
