About Allison Spears
Allison Spears was born in Nashville and raised in Gallatin in Sumner County. She attended the University of Richmond in Richmond, Virginia where she graduated with honors in Business. She lived and worked in Washington, DC after college for Andersen Consulting. Allison missed Tennessee, so she moved back to Nashville to work for Cardinal Health. She also worked for the book publishing company Thomas Nelson in Nashville. Allison and her husband, Martin, lived in the Green Hills area until they moved to Brentwood in 2009. Allison and Martin have three amazing daughters that all attend Brentwood High School.
Even though Allison cannot take credit for this, she is proud, nonetheless, to be at least a 6th-generation Tennessean on every branch of her family tree.
Allison and Martin have been very active and committed members of Forest Hills Baptist Church for 20+ years. She was director of an elementary-aged program for 17 years.
Allison cherishes her neighborhood of Wildwood where she has served in many volunteer roles. In 2018, she was awarded the Ben Ellis Volunteer Award for her work with the Wildwood Swim Team.
Allison works with the refugee community of Nashville through the World Outreach Ministry that operates out of Tusculum Hills Baptist Church. Her decade of service with refugees has enriched her life in ways she never could have predicted.
Allison was appointed to the City of Brentwood’s Historic Commission where she helps with the Boiling Spring Academy Program and serves as Chair of Public Relations. Allison enjoys her membership with the Old Glory Chapter of DAR where she serves on the Flag of the USA Committee and is Chair of the Community Service Awards Committee.
Allison is actively involved in our public schools. She was heavily involved with the PTO at Scales Elementary and Brentwood Middle Schools while her daughters attended these schools. During the calendar year 2021, Allison was honored to be able to work alongside the amazing leadership team at Brentwood Middle School supporting the Administrative Staff. Being a part of that BMS community was the highlight of her working career. Currently, she is serving as the President-Elect of the Brentwood High School PTO.
