Hello everyone! My name is Allyson Porter but my friends call me Ally. I am just a hometown girl, born and raised here in Effingham County. I graduated from Effingham County High School in 2016. After high school, I attended Georgia College and State University and graduated in December 2019 with a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology.

However, a year before I graduated I realized that I really did not want to pursue a career in Psychology. I had fallen in love with baking and decorating cookies and cakes. So, at the age of 20, I had a new dream. I wanted to open a bakery and with the help of my family and friends, Ally’s Bakery opened its doors on November 4, 2020.
