Allison Birkmeyer – Ambassador

Empowering others drives Allison daily.  This can be seen through her Executive Leadership at a global Fortune 500 company and as the Founder of The Quiet Clot®, a non-profit organization whose mission is to increase blood clot awareness. 

Allison felt called to start The Quiet Clot® after surviving life threatening blood clots throughout both of her lungs in May 2018.  Ultimately, Doctor’s said the cardiovascular strength gained from regularly working out saved her life. 

Originally from Oregon, Allison relocated to Charlotte, NC in 2014.  She is proud to call the Queen City home and is excited to honor and celebrate Charlotte’s amazing female leaders through KNOW Tribe.

Fun Facts about Allison:

  1. In one year (2014-2015), she ran 3 marathons and 7 half marathons.
  2. She was born in OR and lived in 4 other states (CA, NJ, CT, PA) before calling Charlotte, NC home for the past 6 years.
  3. The last 4 months is the longest period of time she has been home in 10 years. 

We asked Allison what “Life and Rise” means to her:

”Lift and Rise” means empowering others, providing support and celebrating their wins without expecting anything in return.
