Meet the Team
A University of Michigan graduate always focused on connecting people, Allison's undergraduate thesis work incorporated ideas of social capital and network development to study new immigrant populations in Israel. She then worked at the University of Michigan Hillel and Israel on Campus Coalition creating programs like a Jewish alumni association and advancing University partnerships. Furthermore, as a managing director for a non-profit organization she rebuilt the nonprofit’s infrastructure, managed a multi-million dollar budget and hired and supervised staff. She also tap dances, cooks (a lot), and would totally moonlight as a WMATA bus driver if given the opportunity.facebook linkedin twitter
Urban living is sometimes associated with a lifestyle that lacks a sense of community and neighborliness; but Allison Sheren is here to prove that stereotype wrong.
