The birth of her second son Julian in 2009, who was diagnosed with Down Syndrome, triggered a number of changes in Allison’s Wohl’s life and led her in an entirely new direction professionally. After 15 years in corporate America, having worked in the federal practices of several “Big Four” consulting firms, as well as at GE, Allison decided to leave her busy life as a consultant for the even busier, but more rewarding, world of disability advocacy.
She took on the role executive director of CPSD, a coalition of 22 groups that advocates for the modernization of the public system of supports and services for Americans with disabilities. From there she was hired as executive director of the Association of People Supporting Employment First (APSE), a national membership organization that promotes the full inclusion of people with disabilities in the workplace and society. These roles have allowed her to advocate for the millions of vulnerable Americans.
Allison received her M.B.A. from the College of William and Mary and her undergraduate degree from SUNY Binghamton. In addition to Julian, she is the mom of two other boys.
