Allie graduated from the College of William & Mary with a degree in Government and Environmental Science & Policy. As a student, she organized community events about local climate issues and interned at the US Environmental Protection Agency. Allie moved from the suburbs of Washington D.C. to southern Oregon in 2015 to serve as a school garden educator with AmeriCorps.
Three years later Allie still calls beautiful southern Oregon her home. She now works as the “No Pipeline Organizer” at Rogue Climate, a grassroots organization with a mission to empower southern Oregon communities most impacted by climate change, including low-income, rural, youth, and communities of color, to win climate justice by organizing for clean energy, sustainable jobs, and a healthy environment. Currently, Allie’s focus is on working with frontline communities across the region to stop the proposed Pacific Connector fracked gas pipeline & Jordan Cove LNG export terminal while building a strong grassroots movement for climate justice in rural Oregon.
Allie also serves on the Steering Committee of the Rogue Action Center, an independent nonprofit hub to grow an effective and coordinated movement that can win economic, social, racial, and climate justice based on the needs and realities of our rural and small-town region. In the summers, Allie is a mentor at the Next Generation Climate Justice Action Camp for youth ages 14-18 to gain knowledge and skills to organize for climate justice. Allie spends her free time gardening, exploring the rivers, lakes, mountains, and forests of Oregon, knitting, and cooking shabbat dinners with friends.
