Allison Hall
Office Clerk

Allison Hall is a Junior studying Exercise Science with a minor in psychology. This is her first year working for the honors office and her third in the program. She is working towards a doctorate in Physical Therapy (but if a Broadway show wanted her to take lead she would not be mad). Allison loves to play tennis, sing along to Broadway shows, read, play piano, and cook delicious food that she finds on Pinterest. You can often find her watching Marvel movies, and she is always up for a conversation about Harry Potter, Marvel, and Supernatural. Allison loves serving others, being with friends and family, and meeting new people.
