Allison is a Connecticut-bred & Manhattan-living Millennial with a penchant for great meals, photo-worthy food styling, recipe development, promoting amazing brands that have a story to tell, and juicy food writing. The term “influencer” makes her cringe, as she aims to rise above such a label by the culinary content – both tangible & intangible – she creates.
<—- Quintessential sarcastic influencer pose in SoHo, did I nail it?
While working on her MS of Communications & Information Management, she started Seek Satiation as a Twitter feed in 2013 to post her food photos – and this was way before Instagram blew up! What started as a hobby turned into a side hustle, and her evenings and weekends are often filled to the brim with all things FOOD. Her interests go beyond what might look good on Instagram; she has long been interested in food justice & food insecurity issues – she has been a volunteer for Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen in Chelsea since 2018 – as well as promoting woman-owned, Black-owned, POC-owned , and LBGTQIA+-owned food ventures.
Her 9 – 5 has been spent working at a major NYC hospital since 2009, helping manage many aspects of their infection control data in her current role; she is currently also working towards achieving her CAPM certification, which satisfies her Type A-ness. In her spare time that does not involve meticulously getting natural light to illuminate her avocado toast just right, she loves to flex her 90s-era “Simpsons” knowledge, sing along with Ariana Grande songs roughly 87% on-key, and absorb as many politically-minded books & podcasts as she can.
