President & Founder
After graduating from The University of Texas at Austin with a B.S. in Public Relations and Communications, Allie began her career in Manhattan, working with a luxury Real Estate and Travel PR agency. When the real estate market crashed in 2008, most luxury and consumer publications shifted their focus, leaving their clients with few outlets to share their stories. Seeing an opportunity in the budding industry of social media, Allie created the firm’s social media department and handled all digital media efforts for the PR agency, teaching all employees and clients about the benefits of digital communications to connect with the end-consumer directly.
In 2009, Allie was ready to put her boots back on and return to Texas, where she began helping Austin, Dallas and Houston-area public relations and marketing agencies incorporate social media into their existing public relations strategies. Within several months, her consulting services became a full-time gig, and Integrate was humbly born. Starting in her living room, working in her PJs for +18-hour days, Allie was committed to helping her clients’ businesses grow through unique communications platforms, innovative strategies and measurable results. By staying committed to her clients, and the employees that served them, these humble beginnings quickly grew into what is now one of the leading agencies in Texas.
Since founding Integrate, Allie has won the Houston Business Journal “40 Under 40” award, was an honoree in Houston Business Journal’s first-ever “Women Who Mean Business” awards, named as a “Savvy Sister” by Houston Women’s Magazine, was recently dubbed one of “Houston’s ‘It’ Girls of the Year” and one of 40 “Women [Who] Basically Run Houston” by Houston Chronicle, and was nominated for and successfully completed the prestigious Goldman Sachs 10K Small Business Program.
While Allie utilizes her passion for effective communication across several industries, having touched each and every one of Integrate’s clients, including food and beverage, education, technology, retail, real estate, oil and gas, healthcare, non-profit and hospitality, she most values her client relationships where she has been able to contribute to their growth, right alongside her own agency’s growth.
