Meet Allison Brooks, Government Affairs Specialist
Allison Brooks joined the Texas Star Alliance team prior to the 86th Legislative Session, collaborating with John R. Pitts, Jr. as Government Relations Specialist. With over a decade of experience at the Texas Capitol, Allison managed the schedules and offices of two State Senators, thereby creating a diverse network of legislative staff and agency contacts. In this role, she also gained a wealth of foundational insight to the Texas State Capitol and the legislative process. Serving as Scheduler, Allison frequently interacted with elected officials, and their staff, at the federal, state, and local level of government, and played a managing role in the public relations for the Senate offices.
In between her legislative career, Allison worked as the Account Executive for a Marketing and Public Relations firm in San Antonio, representing clients in tech, education, and the food & beverage industry. While she dedicates her career to public policy, Allison keeps her foot in the hospitality door by managing the public relations for her family’s Austin restaurants.
Raised in Mexico City, Allison volunteers as a Spanish language tutor with Austin’s Partners in Education and also mentors at-risk foster youth through Austin’s Partnerships for Children program.
Allison graduated from St. Edward’s University in 2010 with a BA in Communications, specializing in Media, Advertising & Public Relations; and a BA in International Relations, specializing in Europe, Asia & the Middle East.
