“I love interacting with all the very different people who come through ESSE, especially after they’ve seen the museum. Most people are surprised by how much they enjoy it and the memories it elicits, especially the men!”

Before ESSE, Ally finished her BFA (specializing in Applied Design and Metals) by waiting tables and selling her art. She is married with two beautiful boys, Calder and Dax. Dax is the unofficial “Chairman of the Board” and can be found hanging around ESSE most days.

Ally loves to be near water, preferably the ocean. Her boys keep her busy and require that she memorize all Disney movies and Dr. Seuss books.

Her favorite quote comes from Dr. Seuss: “Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.”
