Allison Kaufman


Allison joined Today’s College Solutions in January of 2017 after living all over the U.S. Born in Alabama,
with many relatives who still live there, she’s well-versed in Southern grace. Growing up in the northern
suburbs of Chicago, she’s an obvious product of Midwestern values and hospitality. She lived on the East
Coast in Philadelphia, New York City, and suburban New Jersey, for close to 20 years, where she easily
adapted to its fast-paced, no-nonsense lifestyle. Now, she’s settled into her favorite location—sunny,
Southern California, where she’s awestruck and grateful for its beauty and climate.
After earning a B.A. in Economics from the University of Pennsylvania and an M.B.A. from Northwestern
University’s Kellogg Graduate School of Management, Allison spent fifteen years in commercial banking.
She assumed the title of Mother-in Chief for roughly a decade, during which she worked with kids of all
ages at both day and sleepaway camps.
Returning to the workforce was gradual, first as a P.E. Coach, then to Lululemon, and finally to her
favorite job at TCS, where she enjoys working with different students and parents, and benefits from
continuous learning from the variety of people she works with. She considers finding the perfect school
for a student as her chief objective and finding out about her student’s acceptances and happiness at
their chosen schools as her greatest accomplishments. Allison considers herself one of the luckiest
people in the world because after years of searching, she’s working in her dream job. It’s her goal to
help her students feel the same way about their college choice.
When not at TCS, you can find Allison running, walking, cycling, or practicing yoga. She’s a secret nerd
who loves to read, knit, and do jigsaw puzzles. Her happy place is at home with her husband, son,
daughter, and two dogs.
