She attended Temple University and graduated with a degree in Media Studies and Production from the School of Media and Communication. During her time at Temple, Ally interned at Fox 29 in Philadelphia in the Special Projects department and at CBS 3 in Philadelphia in the weather department.

Ally first started watching Newswatch 16 in 2011 when she met her college roommates at Temple. From Dunmore and Scranton, her roommates often brought Ally to their homes on the weekends. Ally is so excited to be back in the Northeast and much closer to home.

Ally is a big fan of the Phillies, and of course the Temple Owls. In her spare time, she likes spending time with her family, working out, and traveling.
