Allison developed a passion for strength and conditioning when she started training to play Division 1 field hockey at Quinnipiac University, located in Hamden, CT. Her career and life path shifted while she was a student at Quinnipiac, when she was diagnosed with a brain infection. She began to realize that health should be a priority and that taking care of your body can sometimes be the best form of medicine. Allison believes that exercise is much more than just getting strong or fit. She believes that exercise can help improve health status and movement patterns, prolong life expectancy, and build confidence.
She earned her degree in Health Sciences from Quinnipiac University in May of 2017 and completed several internships before earning her CSCS in 2018. She also has an FMS certification.
Outside of the gym, Allison loves to continue to educate herself as much as possible by reading and spending time with other fitness professionals. She also enjoys going to the beach and traveling.
