Allison has been obsessed with interior design since the original Trading Spaces debuted in 2000 and was inspired to add a lime green accent wall to her childhood bedroom. She started her career in print media at Condé Nast’s Brides New York magazine, where much of her work focused on fact-checking articles and interviews for accuracy. She later worked as a home and registry editor at Brides.com, where she reported on interior design trends and edited their Webby award-nominated blog. A proud Dog Mom and Crazy Plant Lady, she launched The Spruce to help people discover their own passions (no matter the niche) and make their homes a bit more beautiful.
Allison graduated with honors from New York University, with a degree in journalism.
