A pop-culture obsessive, Allison has extensive experience writing about movies, music, and television.

She also contributes annually to an Oscars blog, analyzing the nominees in the Best Costume Design Category in a well-researched deep dive that has become a favorite of the sites' readers.
Integrated SEO terms into blog posts on a variety of topics for emerging bidet brand Omigo. Each post required its own research, from historical ("Who Invented the Bidet?", "Why Don't More Americans Use Bidets?") to scientific ("Are Bidets Good for Hemorrhoid Care?") to technical ("How to Install a Bidet: A Guide for Omigo with Pictures.") SEO terms were creatively incorporated to create copy that was fun, conversational, and in line with the brand's overall voice and style guide.
Allison contributed blog posts on a range of topics for Poppy Flowers, a wedding startup bringing dream flowers to couples at any budget. The goal for blog content was to educate potential customers on what to expect when shopping for wedding flowers and highlight our past customers' beautiful weddings - especially in 2020, when traditional wedding planning was upended but flowers could still help make the day feel special.
