Enid Travel Advocate

An Enid Travel Advocate is someone who represents our city well through their photos, videos and blogs on social media. It’s someone who explores, seeks adventure, captures the fun things to do in Enid and shares it with the rest of us. It’s someone who ultimately wants to go out and explore for themselves.

Allison was born and raised just north of here, where you are just far enough out to call it “Going to Town.” Both of her parents are now retired but continue to live in the house they raised their family; her mother dedicated over 30 years to special education teaching, while her father ran a family business in Enid. Allison has two older brothers (Jason and Jeremy) who are married and reside in Dallas, and she proudly answers to Aunt Al to three nieces and one nephew.

She has a deep-rooted love and appreciation for the outdoors, whether it’s hunting, fishing, or gathering around firepits with friends, enjoying good food and beverages. She considers herself “up for almost anything” whether it is to hop in the car with a friend for a sodie and a cash wish, go for a drive with the music up and windows down, or spontaneous road trips for a concert or even if it’s just to explore a new restaurant.
