Member Since 2011
Allison Sherry has been the Washington bureau chief for The Denver Post since January 2011. Before her Beltway arrival on New Year’s Eve in 2010, she worked in the Denver newsroom for 10 years covering a variety of beats including K-12, higher education, health care, poverty and the 2008 and 2010 political cycles. She also was a part of several special projects including the 9/11 anniversary in New York, the Air Force Academy sex assault scandal, the 2002 winter Olympics in Salt Lake City and was apart of the political team for the 2008 Democratic and Republican National Conventions. Despite the varied assignments and work, her absolute favorite beat was covering K-12 education. She is a winner of several awards for education writing, including the most recent 2010 Best Investigative Education story from the Society of Professional Journalists for a piece she did on for-profit colleges. Allison grew up in Western Colorado and graduated from Colorado State University in 2000. After college, she wrote for a weekly paper in Dublin, Ireland before moving to Denver. In her spare time, she likes running, hiking, riding her road bike and cooking rich food (which necessitates the aforementioned activities.) She is still seeking out legitimate mountains on the East Coast.
