Alison graduated from Southlake Carroll and went to UT Austin, graduating with a BS in Nutrition. After this, she completed Physician Assistant training at Baylor College of Medicine, where she earned both her MS and PA certificate. Following her first two years working in family medicine, Alison worked for ten years in hematology oncology at Texas Oncology HEB.
Alison and her husband have two kids, a five-year-old son and almost-three-year-old daughter, who keep them pretty busy—but she enjoys finding time for exercise. An avid runner, Alison has finished two marathons and about 20 half marathons over the last ten years. She also practices yoga once a week. Alison and her family enjoy being outside together, whether it be at her son’s soccer games or on bike rides, outdoor time is a priority for them.
At the age of 20, Alison was diagnosed with Non Hodgkins Lymphoma and had to go through chemotherapy and radiation. She is grateful that it was a very treatable cancer, and she has now been in remission 19 years.
Alison is excited to be at Southlake Wellness Center because through her own journey to restoring physical and mental health, she has developed a passion for helping others, with a focus on prevention and overall health.
