About Me:

Allison’s first career spanned 15 years in the hospitality industry, which culminated in the development and operation of Crush and Harvest restaurants in Arcata, as well as Retrowagon – an event and festival based food truck.

After leaving the hospitality business, she lent her hard-earned bookkeeping, accounting, tax and payroll experience to positions with Coast Central Credit Union, Blue Lake Casino, SN Servicing Corporation, and is now back at Coast Central Credit Union in the Risk Management department. She has also held various positions in other industries, including web design and event/workshop management for a yoga studio, and art gallery assistance for the former First Street Gallery in Eureka and Reese Bullen Gallery at Humboldt State University.

She is pursuing her passion for supporting small business by completing a dual MBA/Master of Accounting degree. She is excited to work with and support our local small business owners.
