Inside Foundant – the Blog

Meet Allison Bender – Foundant’s Newest Client Services Representative

I grew up in a town in Northern Idaho called St. Maries, and was lucky enough to come to the State of Montana for college. I can thank my college experiences, working at a rafting company in Glacier National Park in the summers, for cultivating my love for the outdoors.

I’ve had the wonderful opportunity to work in two completely different industries in my time since college – Collegiate Marketing for Athletic Departments and at a Software as a Service company – both in Boise, Idaho.

In July 2014, I decided to quit my job and travel to South America for as long as my money would last. My travels in Peru, Bolivia, Chile and Argentina were completely amazing and taught me so many things. I learned to rock climb which afforded me a new set of friends anywhere I traveled.

When I returned from South America, I decided that finding a company that fit my personality was very important, so I started with the Outside Magazine Best Places to work. This is where I found Foundant and I knew it was a match!

I’m so lucky I have returned to the State of Montana to work and live in a place I love. I’m an avid runner, Ultimate Frisbee player, hiker and climber. I’m very excited to make Foundant, where our clients are making a difference in peoples’ lives daily, and Bozeman, a hub of outdoor activities, my home.
