Allison Martinson is a 36 year old Boss Mom, accidental entrepreneur, public servant, and community activist. Mother to 2 year old Eleanor and wife to grocer Tom, Allison has dedicated her life to making the world a better place. As District 19's next Alder, Allison will create and support legislation and policies that work for Madison families.

Finally Home

A child of nomadic parents, Allison has lived around the world. Hopping around from Pittsburgh to London, Los Angeles to Baltimore, Allison never truly understood the concept of home. That is, until she moved to Wisconsin. Madison felt instantly like home - a place to build a career, make lifelong friends, and raise a family. 

Family-Focused

Allison and her husband, Tom, are raising (or perhaps being raised by) their precocious two year old, Eleanor Astrid. Eleanor's favorite activities are eating peas, playing pretend, and keeping her parents on their toes. Tom, Allison's ever-supportive husband, works in produce at Metcalfes Market, and as a delivery driver with local startup Eat Street.

Public Servant

For ten years, Allison has worked in public service. After graduating with honors from Rocky Mountain College in Billings, MT, Allison began work as an environmental educator in rural SE Texas. Upon her move to Wisconsin, Allison worked as a nanny, a farmhand, a naturalist, and an educator. Always mission-driven, Allison believes that work should reflect her personal values.  

Community Activist

Allison's commitment to volunteerism stems from her desire to learn, as well as her passion for making connections. Since moving to Wisconsin, Allison has enjoyed greeting patrons at REAP's Pie Palooza, supporting informal educators through advocacy groups, organizing speakers for Madison Nonprofit Day, contributing to the Madison Food Policy Council, and lending a hand at her daughter's preschool sensory garden.
