Allie- Executive Assistant

Allie joined the Good Shepherd team in December of 2022. She is a Greenville, SC native and is a 2-time college graduate with an Associate’s and a Bachelor’s degree in criminal justice. She originally wanted to create/fund animal cruelty investigation units in the southeast after graduating from school. She has always had a passion for animals and as a result, pursued being a voice for those without one until she realized she could help both animals and people at the same time while working for Good Shepherd.

Her biggest passion in life is horses, and she hopes to own a few when she is older. She currently owns one “fur-baby,” a beagle mix named Pookie. She is also engaged to her fiancé, Daniel, who is a welder in the Upstate. They are extremely excited to finally tie the knot surrounded by family in the fall of 2023. When Allie isn’t at work she enjoys listening to lengthy, action-filled audiobooks and getting some exercise in with her dog around the neighborhood. Allie looks forward to helping customers get through a difficult time in their lives with empathy and compassion.
