After a long string of intern blogs I’m back with an employee highlight!
This week’s is on our Analyst Alison Stanton. Alison is one of the few in the office originally from the Chicago area. She grew up in a suburb and moved back here after college to work! She went to Miami of Ohio, a school that I’m a huge fan of (both my brothers are there currently–great school)!
Other interesting facts about Alison: She worked on the Obama ’08 campaign, she is an excellent baker (personal opinion) and she has a great singing voice!
