All About Allie

This is where you get to know the author of the blog – the person behind the screen. I never liked doing get to know you exercises (you know, in high-school classes) because I never felt I had anything interesting to say! Who would have thought?

Anyway, a little bit about me. My name is Allie and I live and work in Dallas, though I grew up outside of Kansas City. I have a B.S. in strategic communications from Oklahoma State University, and I work at a marketing agency.

I’m passionate about animal rescue, so I volunteer with an animal rescue by fostering dogs and learning as much as I can about dog training and how they communicate. I also love to write, and am extremely interested in nutrition, cooking and all things food.

I have one four-legged child, named Bennett, and as corny as it sounds, he is my pride and joy. Details about his rescue and backstory will certainly be divulged on the blog.

I’m an avid true-crime podcast listener. I have dreams of one day flipping (or just demoing) a house. I have a shopping problem. I love spin class. I believe in karma, and I’m slowly but surely trying to get my finances and anxiety in check, like any other 25-year-old trying to navigate her way through life.

…and if you can’t already tell, I’m pretty much an open book.
