About Me

This is my (abridged) story:

I was born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I went to Winchester Thurston, a private K-12 school, graduated, and attended Smith College. During my third year, I managed to accelerate a semester. So, it was during my second to last semester (the end of my third year) that I found out that I was unexpectedly pregnant.

Alex was born in late August, ten days past his due date, and he is the love of my life. He is beautiful, charming, clever, and oh so sweet.

I live in Pittsburgh with my partner, Zach. He graduated with a degree in Computer Science from Carnegie Mellon University. He works for Apple, here in Pittsburgh.

I now have a degree in Biology from Smith, and a Bachelor’s in Nursing from the University of Pittsburgh. Currently, I’m taking a break from my nursing career and focusing on my family as a stay at home mom.

  1. Hi Allison,

    I’m Redding with Women for a Healthy Environment, a Pittsburgh non-profit focusing on empowering women to advocate for a healthier environment in schools and the community. We are looking to distribute some materials we have on maternal and child health to local moms, prenatal yoga studios, health care centers, hospitals, etc., and would love to send them your way as well.

    If you’re interested, would you send me your mailing address so we can send our educational materials your way. We’d love to hear your perspective!

    Redding Jackson
