Alison is a strong believer in the power of evidence-based policy and the importance of quality research. She believes that now more than ever, policymakers need access to nuanced, accurate, accessible data to make effective housing policy that engages and respects our communities. Alison is proud to be a part of this work at SV@Home as Policy and Research Associate.

Alison holds a Bachelor of Social Work from the University of Central Florida and has an eclectic background in high revenue business leadership, communications, research and analysis, and community activism.
