Allynn McInerney is a MPA, USP, TMaC student. Originally from the Midwest, she went to Connecticut College for her undergrad where she graduated in 2014 with a BA in International Relations and Dance, and a minor in Latin American Studies. Allynn is passionate about the intersection between policy and communications, a passion that brought her to SIPA to learn more about how to take private sector communications tactics and align them with public sector objectives so as to produce more efficient and fast moving change. At SIPA, she serves as the TMaC Program Assistant. She is hopeful that her education and the opportunities afforded to her in New York will lead her to a career that focuses on crafting the strategic communications campaigns of the future that turn ideas and policy into real votes, change, and action.
