You know those people who just get it? The ones who can operate with a skeletal or even nonexistent framework, no historical context, limited onboarding—and somehow still produce a great work product? That would be Alison. In mere days, she was able to get up to speed and not only keep the lights on and the engine humming, but offer strategic insights and guidance along the way. Super grateful to have her in my (and my clients') corner.

We were looking for someone to take us to the next level with our communications, and working with Alison was everything we wanted - and more. She brought a great deal of professionalism and skill to the project, and helped us tell the story of our impact in new ways. I would highly recommend her services!

Alison is fantastic. She excels at creating communications plans that speak to our various audiences strategically and effectively. Her ability to distill complex information into clear and engaging messaging is amazing, as well as her dedication to aligning our communication strategy with our organizational goals. I highly recommend her.

Hi. I'm Alison P. Griffin.

Hard work and conviction are in my bones. I’m the proud daughter of a railroad track laborer/retail stock supervisor and a social worker/teacher/coach. I believe in the social contract and the social safety net, like how free school lunch kept me nourished during a couple hard years.


Built on this foundation is 15+ years of strategic communications experience. Expertise in public relations, thought leadership, public affairs, content strategy, storytelling and copywriting, project and vendor management, people and team leadership, and more that I'd love to put toward advancing your good work.

Let's connect.
