If there’s anything Allie loves more than mac and cheese, it’s art. If there’s anything Allie hates more, it’s her lactose intolerance that impedes her ability to eat mac and cheese. When she’s not fighting her digestive system, Allie could be found doodling on anything she can get her hands on and hanging with her cat-like dog, Tucker. Her love of art and travel pair very well together, as both go hand-in-hand. When she gets away, she loves to visit the local museums and galleries to really soak in the local color. She claims that makes her a nerd — we think otherwise.
Over the summer, Allie spent her time across the pond interning for Emagine, a creative agency based in Ireland. She took on web design, print projects and drank plenty of Guinness. Allie’s creativity doesn’t stop at the canvas. She also loves writing and has worked as an academic writing tutor at Mizzou’s Student Success Center for the past three years. She also serves as an ambassador for the MU Honors College, where she talks with and mentors prospective students both on and off campus.
