Before joining CHI, Allie worked in development as a grant writer and executive speech writer at Philadelphia’s Franklin Institute science museum, where she supported the closing phase of the $65 million “Inspire Science” capital campaign. Prior to that, Allie spent a year in a Boston high school teaching AP English and tutoring high-needs students.
