Allison Calder graduated from The University of Texas at Austin with a Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering. She grew up around the world, living in Japan, Germany, Italy, and four U.S. states as an Air Force brat. Being exposed to many different cultures created a strong interest in the various ways humans survive and thrive. Allison believes in changing the world for the better by making her part of the world better. This entails actively engaging in important causes and helping in-need communities, and serving AsylumConnect is helping Allison live in congruency with this belief. She currently works in the beverage industry and loves working with numbers and organization.
