Allison Brown is Forging A New Path

When Allison Brown first began her career at Kodiak Cakes in 2016, she contemplated quitting. Fresh out of Ohio State University, she was met with plenty of questions and challenges, and felt as if none of her ideas were good enough. Almost two and a half years later, she’s the public relations manager at Kodiak Cakes and couldn’t be more passionate about what she does. Leading their public relations team, Ms. Brown’s innovative marketing tactics have lead to recognition in publications like Forbes and Inc. Magazine.
