Introducing our new managing director
We are elated to welcome aboard our new Managing Director: Allegra Wallingford!
Some of you may already know Allegra (she/her) from She Rock She Rock, where she worked as a Junior Counselor from 2014 to 2016. Through her experience at She Rock, Allegra saw first hand the transformative power of the arts and our community, and has expanded that mission throughout her academic and professional career.
Allegra pursued her education and passion for mission-driven work as the Editor in Chief of ‘Her Campus’ at Notre Dame. As Editor in Chief, she brought her passions for social justice, intersectional feminism, and cultural awareness to the paper. After receiving her Bachelors of Arts in Psychology with a Minor in Education, Allegra worked in several roles in the education sector. She most recently worked with Prodeo Academy where she developed processes to shift multi-cultural parent engagement and boost enrollment. She designed and implemented marketing campaigns to better meet the needs of bilingual parents and students, and worked tirelessly to move their curriculum to a virtual model for over 500 students.
When the She Rock She Rock Board of Directors and staff began the process of adding a new member to our team and looking to the future, we had a lot of big questions to consider. The arts community is in a tumultuous period of survival, transition, and growth, and our community is no exception. We continuously asked ourselves how we could best preserve the heart of the mission, meet the needs of our community, and look towards a brighter future.
Allegra’s career path shows that she is an individual of compassion and conviction. She has a track record of taking on big roles, elevating them, and using her power to connect and uplift. She has a passion for social justice and finds strategic, community-centered ways to improve transparency, access, and opportunity. Allegra is a person that empowers people and makes space.
We welcome Allegra with all of her skills and experience as our new Managing Director. Congratulations, Allegra! We are so excited to partner with you, to empower you,and to make space for your ideas and vision. Today, She Rock She Rock starts a new chapter, embracing what the future holds as we continue our mission of empowering girls, women, trans and nonbinary folks through the art of music.
