Allison van Tilborgh is a business executive, freelance writer, and vegan media mogul based in the Orlando area with her husband John.
She got her start to business administration as a six-year-old girl handling money at her dad's ministry book table before she could even write her name. After school each day, Allison meticulously worked on her first businesses (dog walking, face painting, and even foot massage), their product menus, and Facebook pages. Then, in her preteens, she developed an interest in her parent's business activities as entrepreneurs and event planners. She joined their company, Four Rivers Media, in 2012 as their second employee. In her over-a-decade-long tenure, she has operated as a copywriter, web developer, project manager, systems architect, HR director, operations assistant, event planner, and director of digital media, working with influential business leaders and ministers from across the nation. She now serves Four Rivers Media as an Executive Team member, consultant, and manager of over 45+ employees spanning three countries.
As her professional career advanced, Allison's academic career also gained traction. Endlessly curious and continuously pushing herself for excellence in her research and writing, Allison graduated Valedictorian from Rollins College in 2021 with two degrees, a minor, and ten prestigious awards. She is now working on a Master of Theological Studies at the Pacific School of Religion based in Berkeley, CA.
Allison has founded various organizations: The Sanford Vegan, Interfaith Now, Better Questions Rollins (a public arts initiative), and her freelance writing/coaching/consulting business under her name.
