More about me

Alongside my work in print and digital communications, my experience also includes training employees to meet SEO and accessibility standards. Outside work I've spent time volunteering for organisations including Melbourne's Asylum Seeker Resource Centre and Very Special Kids in administration, mentoring, teaching and one-on-one support.

I pride myself on transparent, timely communication with my clients. Email me at alice.e.allan@gmail.com
