Allison Aubuchon, communications pro for the Foundation for Excellence in Education, decided it’s time to make it on her own.

Aubuchon announced Wednesday that, after four years with the conservative education think tank founded by Jeb Bush, she will be hanging her shingle as an independent communications expert.

“I will now be working independently as a communications consultant,” Aubuchon said. “I am grateful and proud to have played a role in the Foundation’s important student-centered mission, and am thrilled it will continue on a part-time basis as I step into this new chapter.”

in a statement, the foundation said the move was amicable and mutually beneficial.

“We are thrilled she is still working with us and that the Foundation will continue to benefit from her communications skills and expertise,” said Jaryn Emhof, the Foundation’s VP of communications.

Aubuchon has built up an impressive résumé in her relatively young career around the Capitol. She served as press secretary for then-Republican Majority Leader Andy Gardiner in the Florida Senate, and in the private sector before that as PR manager for Tallahassee’s Capital City Bank and the Kidd Group.

The Gator-Seminole hybrid holds both a bachelor’s degree in public relations from the University of Florida and a master’s from Florida State University in media and communication studies.

Her new independent PR shop is called Allison Aubuchon Communications.
