Get to know Allison…
In your words, what do you do here?
Overall, I help make students’ lives easier by making sure they have a super sweet scoot to drive around. Specifically, I answer calls, Schedule pickups, sell new scooters and generally try to make everyone a little happier.
How did you get suckered into working here?
What is your favorite NS4L Core Value?
Stay Calm and Scoot On. I so appreciate the calm in the storm!
What is your favorite throwback song? Why?
Conga by Gloria Estefan. It takes me back to cleaning the house with my mom when I was little. Really, there was more dancing than cleaning — you can’t not dance when that song is on!
If you were a scooter, which scooter would you be? Why?
A 60s Red Vespa scootin’ around Tuscany. Such a pretty and classic scoot!
What inspires you?
Listening to people who are passionate about what they do. Any and all kinds of design and art. Nature.
If you could have any celebrity as you bae for a day who would it be?
So this is like one a day for a whole week right? Gotta start with my #1 Ninja Warrior 😉 on Monday, Gerard Butler for Tuesday, Emma Watson for Woman Crush Wednesday, Heath Ledger, Justin Timberlake on Fri-YAY (because c’mon you can’t not have fun with JT on a Friday night!), Frida Khalo on Saturday for a painting date and the ultimate bae Bey on Sunday.
If you could have your dream vacation anywhere is the world, where would it be?
Thailand, New Zealand, Kauai
If you had to eat the same food every day for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Pub Subs. All day. Every day.
What is the shortest time it has taken you to binge watch a tv show?
I just watched the entire first season of The Crown in under 24 hours.
What would your ideal day/night consist of?
Hiking into the middle of nowhere to camp next to a river. Add in some star gazing, a fire and some watercolor painting and I could die and go to heaven right then and there.
Would you rather spend your leisure money on experiences or tangible things?
It’s all about the experience, but having nice gear is super helpful, can I split it?
Have you ever traveled abroad?
I did, finally, recently! Mexico was awesome – now to visit the rest of the 473925927503 countries I want to visit!
What movie can you watch over and over without getting tired of?
Ace Ventura When Nature Calls, it’s been my favorite since I was a kid.
Do you prefer dogs or cats?
Definitely a dog person – I love my two mutt pup dog-ters, Vayda and Cali! <3 I tried to have a cat once, but her all black fur should have been a sign. Pretty sure she came straight from hell to torture me while I slept.
If you could have any occupation for the rest of your life, without worrying about skills or money, what would it be?
I’d be a painter and a writer.
