Allison is a Board Certified Holistic Health Coach, graduate of the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in New York City and an Environmental Health Specialist. She holds degrees in Psychology and Television Production from Ithaca College in upstate New York. For over fifteen years, Allison has been on a health-giving journey for herself and others. The sudden and devastating loss of her Father to heart disease taught her valuable lessons about using food as medicine, course correcting for genetic warning signs and the crucial lost role nutrition plays in our daily lives. Recognizing the importance that maximum nutrition plays in modern healthy lifestyles, she successfully healed her own chronic joint pain, migraine headaches and sugar addiction while managing to shed those last few "pesky pounds" that so many people struggle to control.
