Growing up, Allison lived all over the United States including Arizona, Idaho, Oklahoma, Indiana and then settled here in Utah after high school. One of her early childhood memories was when her mother would take her and her younger sister to nursing home communities in their neighborhood to visit the residents and paint their nails, read stories, entertain, and drop off goodies on a regular basis. Her parents instilled the importance of volunteer work and a deep respect for the elderly early in her childhood that has resonated with her throughout her life.
Allison has been working in the healthcare field for over 20 years. She began as a Certified Nursing Assistant and then continued her education studying Health Science/Nursing and English Literature. Allison enjoyed using her education and experience in various Health Care Management and Administrative roles including Medical Office Management, Clinical Staff Supervisor roles, Veteran Benefit Advocating and Admissions. Her favorite experiences have been those made as a Memory Care Director, and she is passionate about caring for those suffering from dementia. She loved volunteering for the Alzheimer’s Association and educating clinical staff working with residents in Memory Care. She is compassionate for the elderly and disabled, striving to do what she can to continuously improve and enrich the lives of those living in long term care communities.
In her free time, she enjoys camping and fishing, especially in Southern Idaho. Her favorite thing to do is fish from the shore of any lake and has been known to wade into the water long after the sun goes down to catch bass. She and her husband are residents of Brigham City and together they have 5 children and 4 grandchildren.
