Originally from Rock Hill, SC, Alyson Johnson is the Campaign Development Director for the St. Louis Chapter of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS). A graduate of Clemson University, she has been with LLS for 8 years and recently relocated to the Fort Leonard Wood area from Charlotte, NC. During her tenure with LLS, Alyson has brought on national partnerships for the organization and has overseen signature campaigns including Light The Night, Students of the Year and Man & Woman of the Year- growing them all to be $1mm+ events in the market.
Alyson is passionate about the work of LLS, because in 2010, she herself was diagnosed with thyroid cancer, but her heart for philanthropy does not stop there. Alyson has served as a community liaison for The Ronald McDonald House, JDRF and Elevation Church Outreach and has helped start up and run a non-profit organization for orphaned children in Mityana, Uganda.
Outside of work, Alyson enjoys kayaking, photography and traveling with her husband Ryan. She loves a good pun, a strong cup of coffee (or bourbon) and her two golden doodles, Sammy and Sophie.
