Allison Kleis

Allison Dorr Kleis has split her time between marketing and politics for the last twelve years.

In 1999 Allison went to work managing the office, and assisting with scheduling and advance, for then Texas Governor George W. Bush's Iowa Caucus Campaign. From there, she went on to serve as the Marketing Director for the largest independently owned real estate company in Iowa.

After the caucus victory, and working with some wonderful mentors, in 2001, Allison was asked to serve as an aide to the Iowa House Majority Leader at the Statehouse. There, she continued to work for the Republican leadership until late 2008. During this time, she spent much of her free time helping House candidates get elected to the Legislature.

Weaving her experience in marketing and politics, Allison brings her expertise in both industries to Two Rivers. She enjoys helping clients develop and implement a comprehensive plan to achieve their fundraising goals and fulfill their compliance needs.

Allison is a graduate of Iowa State University, and lives with her husband, Karlton Kleis, and their three children in Clive.
