Sister Spotlight: Allison

            Everybody knows Allison for her amazing voice that fills ADPi events with love and her happy demeanor. We are lucky to name her our Music Chair and Greek Sing Coordinator. She has being doing a lot of the planning and behind the scenes work for Greek Sing.

            Allison is a Communication Sciences and Disorders (CSD) major with music and exceptional education non-teaching minors. She is extremely passionate about being a speech pathologist. She cannot wait to work with kids and adults in a hospital setting. She also wishes to use her music minor to help clients, ‘find their voice’ since most of them will not be able to communicate normally.

            Her background and involvement in JMU Chorale and JMU's Treble Chamber Choir makes her the perfect candidate for her positions in ADPi. She is also an active member in the JMU community.  She was chosen for TCC to be a section leader for the Alto 2's where she holds weekly to bi-weekly outside practice sessions for the girls in her section.  This way they are allotted extra time to practice their music.  

            She is also involved in JMU’s intervarsity, is in the honors program, and will be going on a study abroad program in Barcelona, Spain this summer.  She is a volunteer at the Rise House where she is a mentor for the girls who come every other Friday night to do different activities and crafts. As if she doesn’t already have enough on her plate, she additionally volunteers at RMH.

            In her small amount of free time she loves spending time with her family and friends, singing, dancing, and acting! She also loves do indoor and outdoor activities like soccer, swimming, and hiking. Thank you so much for all you do for not only ADPi, but for your community Allison.  You are truly an inspiration and someone that makes a difference in everything that you do!
