Allison Lopour, Executive Director of Talent

Since joining Collegewise in 2007, Allison has personally helped over 500 students find and apply to the right colleges. She is also the Executive Director of Talent at Collegewise, a Collegewise Master Counselor who trains new hires, and a certified Taylor Swift fanatic (the real kind, not the kind who just says that as a cheap ploy to connect with teenage students).

A 2005 graduate of the University of Redlands where she studied English and creative writing while working as a barista at Starbucks, Allison spent two years as a University of Redlands admissions officer and personally reviewed over 1,000 college applications. When she’s not counseling, Allison enjoys watching bad TV, crafting, and spending time with her husband and their daughter, who is already being groomed to become president of the Taylor Swift Fan Club one day.
