Allie has worked in Seattle since 1971 as a counselor, an advocate, teacher, administrative coordinator, and in many other roles in order to serve and empower the Deaf and DeafBlind community here. She played an instrumental role in creating ODHH under DSHS, and helped to write the TDD Project Bill in 1985. She actively led and organized efforts to raise money in support of the facility where today’s HSDC resides (and previously CSCDHH). Allie has been a major player in advocating for the rights of citizens in Washington, as well as being involved with women’s rights organizations.
Currently Allie is “retired”, working part time with DeafBlind senior citizens. She is excited to share some of her stories and experiences with WSRID members.
