A former Classy Cat, cosmetologist and third-grade entrepreneur, Alison joined the Manhattan office of The Trust Company in 2013 as a receptionist and moved to Anne Lewis-Smith’s operations team in 2014.
Her duties include back-end client support such setting up client accounts, tax reporting and other administrative responsibilities, as well as corporate bill payment.
“I think it’s really important that clients feel welcomed when they come here.”
A Council Grove, Kan., native, Alison studied accounting at Kansas State University, but that’s not where her proclivity for business began. She got her start in grade school, offering dance lessons to the neighborhood kids, and opening her first checking account with the proceeds. She chose Garfield-themed checks (why not, after all?), and her first purchase was made at the school book fair.
Alison and her husband, Eric, have a son, Dekeyn, who keeps them both busy. As a family, they like to be outside, spending time with family and friends.
