Allison is a Client Partner with Kairos, a facial biometrics firm that helps people and organizations improve how they interact with and engage their employees, patients, and customers. In her role at Kairos, Allison executes the vision of Kairos, which is to help developers humanize the way computers see the world.
Prior to joining Kairos, Allison served as legal counsel for entrepreneurs and multinational corporations alike in complex commercial and intellectual property matters. She loved the client service side of her legal career, but a growing passion for technology and entrepreneurship led her to enroll in her first computer programming class. The class was CS50xMiami — Harvard’s introductory computer science course taught at The Idea Center at MDC in partnership with Harvard University, LaunchCode, the Knight Foundation, and Miami-Dade College. Taking CS50 ultimately led to Allison’s being hired by Kairos and shifting her career focus from helping businesses with legal issues to helping businesses innovate and grow.
Allison also uses her skills to serve her community and extend the ladder of opportunity to others. She serves on the board of the Nyah Project, an initiative that provides fellowships for diverse youth from underserved communities to experience worlds beyond them and discover their true purpose. She also volunteers with Girls Who Code, CodeArt, Code Fever, Dibia Dream, and NFTE (Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship). She has been active in both Girls Who Code’s school year clubs program and their summer immersion program. Allison launched a school-year, community-based Girls Who Code Club at The Idea Center and was honored this past summer for being the top Miami volunteer with the Girls Who Code summer immersion program. Allison was a key member of the volunteer team that established the first Code Art Miami event in 2016 and is the Chairperson for Code Art Miami 2017.
Allison earned her B.A. in Philosophy and Public Policy from George Washington University. She earned her J.D. from the University of California, Davis, King Hall School of Law, where she was Editor-in-Chief of the U.C. Davis Law Review. She has been a member of the Florida Bar since 2005 and a Florida Super Lawyer, Rising Star, from 2010-2016.
