In addition, Allison enjoys helping teach younger students varying topics in STEM through the organizations she is involved in, such as Catalyst for Success. You can also find her curled up with a book or playing field hockey in her free time.

Besides robotics, she is a vice president of her school's Math Club as well as the treasurer of Latin Club. Outside of school, Annie enjoys to play both tennis and the flute.
