Building rapport with clients is one of Alison's specialties. Clients rely on her to share the nuances of a project at every stage.
She has worked at Harris for most of her 18 years in the industry, so it's no surprise that Alison has developed long-term relationships that have benefited communities across California.
As a Senior Director in the municipal market and special district finance practices, Alison is an expert in the intricacies of AB1600 fees and has been an integral player in guiding new developments through the specific plan, EIR, and finance plan process. She's also skilled at acquisition audits—ensuring that public agencies understand all aspects of the infrastructure they pay developers to construct. This understanding is essential when precious public funds and jobs are on the line.
Alison's engineering career began as a student intern at Caltrans. Fast forward nearly two decades later, and today she's a respected professional and is a member of the California Society of Municipal Finance Officers and the American Society of Civil Engineers, Orange County Chapter.
Alison's impressive track record transcends professional achievements: She's run nine half-marathons and a full marathon. That's when she's not camping, traveling or playing with her children at the beach.
Harris has always been good at finding niches in the market that enable us to help our clients solve some of their toughest problems.
