Allison has spent her entire career in the hospitality industry. First, for years waiting tables and then shifting to the catering industry. Following that, for nearly a decade, she worked with Parkside Projects as Event Manager & Director, where she established a genuine love for the private dining and events industry.
Recognizing a growing need in the industry to help restaurants and bars build private event management programs, Allison founded Austin Venue Collective in 2017. Starting with just 3 venue partners, Austin Venue Collective now manages events for over 20 unique venue spaces—with a truly limitless range of event possibilities. Her vision is to be the go-to event management partner for venues and party hosts across the U.S., bringing a personal touch to the entire experience.
Allison is a graduate of Michigan State University The School of Hospitality Business and lives in Austin, TX. When not busy at Austin Venue Collective, Allison enjoys hanging out at local, kid-friendly venues with her husband Pat and daughter Roma, trying the many new restaurants and bars around town, catching a live show, and traveling!
