Allana has been a resident of Geelong since 1982. After completing her Arts/Law degree at Monash University, she worked as a solicitor in Geelong for more than 20 years, most extensively in the Family Law field. She was a partner in the firm, Hodges Hall (now merged with Harwood Andrews).
Allana joined the Victorian Bar in 2001 and continues to practise in family law and family law mediation. Allana is a nationally accredited family law mediator.
Allana has had extensive involvement with community organisations including Deakin University Animal Experimentation Ethics Committee, Barwon Child Rights and Maltreatment Task Force, Zonta International, St Laurence Community Services, the Geelong Club, The Gordon Board and Audit & Risk Management committee, the Steampacket Board and served as a Regional Councillor with the City of Greater Geelong from 1998-2001.

Allana lives in Leopold, with her husband, Paul Davey. She has three children and four grandchildren, and tries to find time to indulge her love of travel, running, skiing and playing the piano – an impossible task.
Allana is honoured to be able to contribute to the work and outcomes that the Geelong Community Foundation strives to achieve.
