Our people Allyson FrazierDirector of Policy Engagement
Allyson Frazier is the director of policy engagement for Voices for Healthy Kids. Currently, she heads up the campaign consultation and grant making team for Voices for Healthy Kids.
Allyson has worked in the field of public affairs for more than 20 years, and has kept her sense of humor and belief in government for and by the people. For close to two decades with the American Heart Association and Voices for Healthy Kids, she has been responsible for planning and implementing advocacy campaigns on the state, regional and local levels.
Prior to joining the American Heart Association, Allyson was the campaign manager of Clean Air Works, the successful campaign that made Boston one of the first major cities to go smoke-free, and ultimately paved the way for a smoke-free state law. She supported the passage, implementation and monitoring of public health laws and regulations. Allyson credits this experience as providing her an excellent understanding of the process of implementing changes once a bill becomes a law.
Allyson earned a master’s degree in social work from Arizona State University, specializing in community-based strategies and a bachelor’s degree from American University in international studies.
Allyson is the proud and harried mom of three wild kids, raising them to change the world (when she isn’t driving them late to practices, or is it a game?).
