  • Alumni Spotlight - Allie Martin, MBA '13

February 05, 2024

Midway University is proud to spotlight Allie Hembree Martin, MBA from Shelbyville, KY.  She received her MBA in 2013.  She chose Midway University because of its reputation and the ease in allowing her to work full-time while attending school at night.   Her favorite memory has come after graduating and serving as an Adjunct Professor for Midway University.  She loved sitting on campus between classes and observing the beauty of the campus. She valued Midway University’s small class size as she was able to form friendships with classmates and her professors.

Allie is the owner/President of Fame and Fortune.  Allie works with female entrepreneurs to elevate their brands by gaining credibility and authority through proactive public relations and strategic social media.  She formerly worked in public relations for Amazon, Alltech, Kendra Scott and the International SPA Association. Allie was named the Public Relations Society of America’s 2019 Rising Star and Influential Businesswoman Awards’ 2021 Most Influential Public Relations Strategist (Midwest USA).

Although Allie is a busy successful professional, she still finds time to do the things she loves like reading, baking, and currently pursuing her Master Gardener certification.  Last but not least, she has a one-year-old daughter, Caprese, and has loved learning to be a mom!

While Allie was attending MidwayU she learned that “going to school and working full-time was not an easy task; however, MidwayU allowed me to see that I could work hard towards something I wanted and remain committed to something that has brought great value to my life!” She currently serves as the Vice President of the Midway University Alumni Board and will step into the Presidency role for the 2024/2025 physical year.

Allie believes that your degree is something that no one can ever take away from you, it is one of the very few things in this world you will have with you for the rest of your life.  She encourages students to “make the very most of your time at MidwayU to make memories that will last a lifetime.”

Allies’ favorite quote, “If you don’t know where you’re going, any road will take you there.”
