College and Career Advisor
Hello! My name is Allison Eastridge. The early years of my life were spent in the beautiful Mountain City, and much of my family resides there; however, I would consider myself an Elizabethton native.
I graduated from Elizabethton High School in 2010, before I packed my bags and headed west to earn a degree from Middle Tennessee State University in 2014. At MTSU, I changed my major three times before settling on Organizational Communications.
I interned with iHeartRadio Nashville and had my heart set on using my degree in the music industry. An unexpected event eventually brought me back home, and I was fortunate enough to land this position. The first year I had all intentions to move back to Middle Tennessee, but something pulled on my heart and told me I needed to stay. So here we are, entering my fourth year as a NiswongerCARE Advisor!
I love to stay busy, so I run the social media account for NiswongerCARE and work another job most evenings. My family and friends are my world and help keep me grounded. I spend the majority of my money on concerts and traveling! I did a road trip across the country when I graduated college and backpacked 11 countries in Europe this summer. I always encourage my students to dream big and go into the world, because it is truly our greatest teacher!
