Allison Hardin, Experience Specialist
Allison Hardin is a certified FEMA trainer who has trained community leaders from San Juan to Saipan on topics relating to sustainability, continuity of operations, and disaster resilience. She’s had to be personally resilient, as well, as her career path wound through emergency services to retail management before starting over in local government after her son was born. Allison specializes in customer service, having learned from the best during her tenure at Reed & Barton Silversmiths and the Disney Company, where her team won a coveted Spirit Stick award. Currently, Allison trains community leaders and responders around the country for the National Disaster Preparedness Training Center (NDPTC), part of the research arm of the University of Hawaii at Manoa.
