Allie grew up in beautiful Southern California, where most of her family still resides. She graduated from San Francisco State University with B.A. in Humanities, with an emphasis in Urban Studies. Through BAyUP, she learned about Jesus’ passion for justice and saw ways His heart breaks over issues of economic, gender, and racial inequality. Allie also learned that partnering with Jesus to fight systemic injustice requires long–term investments in people and neighborhoods.She also loves traveling and exploring new places, watching the San Francisco Giants win the World Series, reading, earthquakes, listening to good music (ie: Sam Cooke!!), and catching Olympic fever every 2 years. She is honored to be a part of God's kingdom in the City of Angeles.
