Speaker

Allison Wilson-Maher Center City, Philadelphia, PA - Primrose Schools

Allison P. Wilson-Maher is passionate about education and dedicated to making a positive impact on local children’s lives in a safe and nurturing learning environment in Philadelphia.

As a first-generation college student, Allison has always placed a high value on education, but her journey to opening a school didn’t begin until she and her husband John were expecting their son. They struggled to find a child care provider in the heart of the city that offered the high standard of early education and care they wanted for their child. So, she and John decided to open the first Primrose school in Philadelphia to provide high quality education and care for families just like theirs.

Prior to owning a Primrose school, Allison enjoyed a successful, 25-year career in residential and commercial/healthcare real estate. Her wide-ranging capabilities include strategic marketing, business development, leasing, and commercial real estate project management and development services.
