Allison Blackstone
Creative Director


That old Broadway tune “Ya Gotta Have Heart” must have been written for Allison. Passionate, articulate, warm and talented, Allison Blackstone is the Creative Director everyone asks for when twanging of heartstrings is in order. A graduate of University of North Florida, Allison grew up in Panama (the country, not the hat.) Beginning her career in Jacksonville, Florida, she has diverse experience across business categories from health care and hospitality to corporate communications and consumer goods.


At GarrandPartners, her wonderful work has won awards and accolades for Maine Medical Center, Versteel, The Portland Museum of Art and FairPoint Communications. But of all her accomplishments, none is greater than her splendid doppelgänger, her daughter Chloe.
