Allie came to KTVU in 2009. Some of the most significant stories she’s covered in that time include the San Bruno gas pipeline explosion, the Ghost Ship warehouse fire, The Tubbs, Atlas and Kincaid wildfires in the North Bay and most recently, the Covid-19 pandemic.

Born and raised in the Bay Area, after graduating from California High School in San Ramon, Allie opted for a change of scenery (and climate) and went to college at Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois. She earned her bachelor's and master’s degrees from the Medill School of Journalism.

Before graduate school, she worked as a production assistant at the Noticias Univision bureau in Mexico City, and later in Washington, D.C. as a researcher with CNN Productions. Allie started her on-air career doing reports based out of Washington, D.C., for WDTV in Bridgeport, West Virginia. Later, she covered the state legislature for News 8 Austin in Texas (now Spectrum News) and moved to Phoenix, Arizona to work at KSAZ for three years before making the move to KTVU.

Allie and her family enjoy getting outside to enjoy all sites in the Bay Area: from hiking the trails at Tilden and the Redwood Regional park, to taking a trip to the Oakland Zoo or catching a movie at the Grand Lake Theater. They love skiing Tahoe in the winter and making their yearly family trip to Santa Cruz in the summer.
