Allie is a Youth Housing Case Manager at SMYAL. She is originally from Massachusetts but now considers DC her home. She obtained her undergraduate degree in Psychology from George Washington University and her Masters Degree in Social Work from University of Maryland, Baltimore. She is now a licensed social worker in DC.

Prior to starting her career at SMYAL, Allie provided mental health services to young adults suffering from cancer. She identified a lack of support for LGBTQ individuals in the cancer community, and bridged the gap by creating inclusive spaces for this population.

When she’s not working, you can find Allie spending time with her cat, Fiona, unleashing her creative side with a knitting project, or spending time with her family and friends.
