Allie was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and was drawn to the outdoors as a young girl. She grew up horseback riding, camping and fishing with her family, and playing sports. During her college years at the University of Pittsburgh she discovered hunting through her then boyfriend, now husband, Nick. She started documenting and sharing her outdoor adventures on social media in 2015 through “Outdoors Allie” as a way to connect with like minded folks; those who hunt for their food, care deeply for wildlife, public land conservation, and enjoy sharing a cold one around a campfire. Her go-to cocktail is a spicy margarita from scratch and her guilty pleasure is eating raw cookie dough. As a kid she swore she'd have a fridge full of cookie dough and now she can proudly say, she does.
