Alison Blankenship

Senior Marketing Manager
I graduated Cum Laude from The Ohio State University with degrees in Marketing and Communications. (Go Bucks!) I’ve been working in the textbook business for 10 years and my work has been featured in College Confidential, The Philadelphia Inquirer, Pennsylvania Tribune, and other publications. I’m an obsessive lover of dachshunds, and a passionate reader of books. I’m an avid Pinner and poster, and I’m all over our Facebook page, Twitter account, Instagram and Pinterest.

Business Intelligence Developer
I have been working in the textbook business for over a decade now, and currently work as a business intelligence developer. I am certified in Tableau (Fundamentals/Advanced from InterWorks). I live in Columbus, OH with my wife, Sarah and our rabbit named Puppy. I was educated in English Lit at East Tennessee State University and recently received my MDiv from Ashland Theological Seminary. I love a great story; which leads me to be an avid reader and devoted film junkie.
