Both an autodidact and neurodivergent Allison’s interest in IT created a career that included a “very particular set of skills”. Spending three years within the Troubled Teen Industry with an isolated upbringing in the deep south her fierce tenacity was her strength. Allison applied her tech skill set not only to survive but to generate awareness creating resources for public use. This was further refined and utilized in litigious and legislative efforts addressing the TTI. Allison specializes in open source intelligence researching institutional abuse, cult based practices, and coercive persuasion with her work referenced on the investigative resource bellingcat.
