Amy Humphrey currently resides in Springville, Utah with her husband, Steve, and her four beautiful children. She has always been active in her children's schools and her local community and has a soft spot for small children.

Allison Tueller, Communications and Social Media Manager

Allison's non-profit work began in her early twenties when she volunteered a number of times in Zambia. Later, while attending USU, she co-founded The Ungana Foundation in Rwanda and DRC. Since 2013, she has worked with her husband, Jeff, as a multi-media developer for their business, Vagabond Original. Working from home allows them to fulfill their dream to work from anywhere and to see the world from the back of a rented enduro motorcycle. After she and Jeff began designing the new Rising Star website, she realized how much she missed working in the non-profit sector. When the opportunity arose to come on as the Communications and Data Manager, she was the perfect fit.
