Director, MBA Recruiting and Admissions

Alison Merzel BS Communications
Northwestern University

Master of Labor and Human Resources
The Ohio State University

Alison has been a member of the Fisher Graduate Programs Office since 2002, when she worked as a Graduate Assistant during her enrollment in the MHRM program. Her Fisher experience was so positive that she decided to forgo plans to work in corporate human resources and stay to recruit students into the Full-Time and Working Professional MBA programs.

Before entering the world of higher education, Alison worked in Media Planning for a Chicago advertising agency. Alison is originally from Chicago and is a big fan of the Walker Bros. Original Pancake House, Once Upon a Bagel, and walking/jogging along Lake Michigan. She is a true Big 10 fan, holding degrees from two Big 10 universities and covering four in her immediate family alone! She met her husband at Northwestern University and they have two children and a soft coated wheaten terrier named Wrigley.
