From Freedom High School to The University of Pittsburgh | Take it from a Local with Allison

This week, join Bethlehem resident and University of Pitt student Jaime as we talk about all things Lehigh Valley related. Jaime, a Freedom High School graduate and longtime resident of the Lehigh Valley, talks about all her favorites in the area in this episode. 

From memories made at the Celtic Classic parade, to the amazing food found throughout the area, and of course to talking about the many must-do things to experience during the holiday season, we talk about it all!

Take it from a Local, a Lehigh Valley with Love Podcast, is hosted by Allison Pittenger, a 20-year-old college junior.

“A Bethlehem native, I grew up going to Musikfest every summer, seeing shows at the State Theatre, and experiencing all that the Lehigh Valley has to offer. I’m a current student at East Stroudsburg University studying Video & Television production. I love theme parks, musical theatre, traveling, and of course creating content for people to enjoy. I began as an intern with Lehigh Valley with Love in early 2020 and have continued to work with them on various projects, and now this podcast! The goal of Take It From a Local is to hear from Lehigh Valley residents of past and present and to get their views and opinions on the many things to experience in the area. You can find me and follow my journey through life over on my Instagram @alli.pitt. I hope you enjoy the podcast!”
