Psychology – Sociology Alum Starts as Senior Analyst in January

Alison Grossman graduated in 2014 with her B.A. in Psychology and Sociology from the College of Arts and Sciences at Ohio University and then in 2015 from the University of South Carolina with a Masters in Public Health, specializing in Health Services Policy Management.

She then worked with the State of South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control for a year as the community health improvement coordinator. In this role she managed and coordinated the four public health regions and maintained communication with the programs within the Bureau of Community Health and Chronic Disease Prevention.

Grossman just accepted a job as Senior Analyst in Management Consulting with PricewaterhouseCoopers in Columbia, South Carolina, and starts in early January 2017.

“I love solving problems. I really enjoy helping others and finding a solution that best fits their needs.”

Grossman’s history with Ohio University dates back to the 1950’s. Her grandparents met on campus, fell in love & were married at the church on Court Street. Her parents were met in Tiffin Hall on East Green. Her grandfather is Jerry Sloan, an alum of Scripps School of Journalism & infamous Public Relations professor (now Professor Emeritus). He taught from 1992-2002, and when she was growing up, visiting her grandparents meant visiting Ohio University.

She did not apply to any other university, because Ohio University was it.

“From my family history, to the beautiful buildings, to the bricks, and the Bobcats, I could not be more proud to call myself an alumna of this incredible institution.”

Grossman still keeps in touch with several of her professors, and enjoys keeping them up the date on her journey, especially Dr. Peggy Zoccola of the Psychology Department who was her inspiration to pursue public health after taking Zoccola’s health psychology class junior year.

“Her passion for the subject, the program, the students, and this school was so apparent. I was so pleased to tell her I was accepted to an incredible public health Masters program.”
