Alison is a results-oriented leadership coach passionate about empowering professionals to unlock their potential and achieve results. Her certifications in positive psychology and happiness studies lead her to focus on implementing solutions that address root causes. Appreciating that insight alone cannot sustain positive transformation, she approaches her work as a “personal trainer for the brain.” Alison asks powerful questions that draw out her client’s inherent wisdom while also sharing science-backed strategies that lead to lasting behavioral change.

Alison’s coaching is uniquely informed by her professional and personal life experiences as a corporate executive, entrepreneur, and mom navigating multiple relocations.  Before becoming a coach, she spent 15 years working at IBM and Pepsi-Cola. She consulted with not-for-profits and entrepreneurs during the decade in which her family relocated four times, both abroad and domestically.
