Alison attended Meredith College and finished her BA at UNC Charlotte, and her MA at East Carolina University. The oldest of 4 children, Alison grew up in a medical family and is a veteran swimmer.

During graduate school, Alison became a group fitness instructor and fitness expert and throughout her 30+ year career has enjoyed working with others both privately and in group settings to help coach and inspire them to achieve a higher level of health, fitness and longevity through a number of practices.
