Originally from the San Francisco Bay Area, Allie moved to D.C. after graduating from UCLA with a degree in history. She interned at National Museum of American History's Office of External Affairs, where the Smithsonian and development bugs both hit her hard. Following her internship, she worked with the U.S. Capitol Historical Society, managing their corporate membership program for three years. In January of 2014, she returned to the Smithsonian, this time at the National Postal Museum. She worked in support of their corporate and annual giving programs before joining the Libraries in November of 2015. Allie is thrilled to use her skills and enthusiasm in support of the Smithsonian Libraries.
