Alyson (BFA Fashion Design ’02) is an artist and professional drawing on an expansive nonprofit arts administration background and a creative lens for a strength-based approach to realizing projects and exceeding expectations. Her current role as the Graduate Programs Coordinator weaves together her artistic and administrative strengths to support recruitment, travel, grant-writing, event-planning, and more. Alyson was formerly the Operations Manager at preK-12 arts education nonprofit ArtWell and spent more than eight years at The University of the Arts as part of the Admissions team, including as an Interim Director. She was offered a job before even graduating from Moore by a critic at the Senior Fashion Show, and spent time in design before deciding that her personal mission more closely dovetailed with nonprofit art education, which she has supported ever since. Alyson continues to create, make, write about, and show work in and around Philadelphia.
