Gianna Harrison

Gianna began her career as a legislative aide in the Ohio Senate and shortly after became the Deputy Press Secretary to the Secretary of State. She was recognized as a quick learner in communications, stakeholder engagement, media relations and campaigns while working in the political realm. After having children, Gianna made the transition to utilize her skills in the nonprofit sector and to support school communications. Her passion for schools stems from her belief that the biggest way to instill change in communities is from the ground up and schools are a hub for local impact. Gianna hails from Powell, Ohio where her love of local elections and election night parties was fostered by Olentangy Schools’ exponential growth and her mother’s career in school leadership roles. She joined Allerton Hill Communications in 2019 and specializes in providing strategic communication plans, consulting on media relations and messaging for everything from routine communication to crisis situations. She has a B.A. in Public Policy Analysis and a Minor in Non-Profit Management from The John Glen School of Public Policy at The Ohio State University. She stays busy chasing her two young sons and making trips across the Pond to visit her husband’s family.
