Alli grew up in Chattanooga, TN before moving to Nashville to study Social Entrepreneurship with a concentration in Contemporary Social Issues at Belmont. After learning Photoshop on a whim, Alli accidentally started freelancing as a graphic designer and photographer during her last two years of college and began juggling art electives with her business major. 


Being a May 2020 graduate, Alli’s undergrad experience was cut short, and she began to take her mental health more seriously by going to counseling. Alli has always found herself deeply affected and moved by social justice issues of all kinds — mental health being one of the many — and through therapy, she found she could advocate through art and social media. 


After spending the last year freelancing for several companies and influencers, Alli found a home at the front desk of The Happy Hour. Having the opportunity to assist with marketing at a mental wellness studio feels like a dream and a beautiful blend of her passions. When Alli isn’t at The Happy Hour, she’s usually editing photos, reading memoirs and romance novels, or eating at The BE-Hive in her home of East Nashville.

Personal Mantra

 This life is mine alone. So I have stopped asking people for directions to places they’ve never been.
