We’re so proud to work with each and every one of our staff members here at Donor Alliance. In our Staff Spotlight, we like to take a minute to let you learn more about who we are and why we work at Donor Alliance.
Name: Alison Gillum
Position: Community Relations Coordinator – WY
Years at Donor Alliance: 9 months
Why you chose to work at Donor Alliance: It is very important for me to know that the work I do every day makes a positive impact in the lives of others. I knew that coming to DA would allow me the opportunity to do just that. My job provides me with the privilege of getting to know the most amazing donor families and recipients, all while working alongside some of the most talented, passionate, dedicated people I’ve ever met.
What does donation and transplantation mean to you: Donation and transplantation represents hope and possibility to me. Donation provides hope to donor families at one of the hardest times of their lives, and every time someone new joins the organ, eye and tissue registry, it brings hope to someone in need of a lifesaving transplant. Donation and transplantation provides people with so much possibility through a second chance at life. There is no greater gift that anyone could give or receive.
Any direct connection to donation and transplantation: I don’t have a direct connection, but donation and transplantation is a cause I’m very passionate about.
What do you enjoy doing when you’re not working (hobbies and such): I enjoy spending time with my husband getting out and exploring Wyoming! There is so much natural beauty to appreciate here. We’re still discovering all the hiking trails and parks. Additionally, I’m kind of history nerd, so I really enjoy visiting all of the great historic sites around the state as well.
