Allison Burrows

Master's degree candidate in Speech-Language Pathology

B.S., Speech-Language Pathologh and Audiology, East Tennessee State University

I love reading, coffee, and tacos. If you want to discuss any of these things come find me!

Why I want to be a coach: As an undergraduate student, I didn't have any guidance regarding study habits, time management, test anxiety, etc.  I am exceptional excited to provide that service to the students of ETSU.

I am an animal lover and foster dogs and kittens until they find forever homes.

I started out as an art major but changed to psychology after realizing how much I enjoy counseling and helping others.  I look forward to helping students succeed and make the most out of their school year!
