Über Alison Shea

Alison is a Global Policy and Advocacy Associate with Global Poverty Project (GPP). Prior to joining GPP, she had a high-rolling career in finance but counted every hour of the day. So she left and couldn't be happier. She's a huge propronent of the power of business to change the world for the better and you'll definitely see her ranting about that often.
