About Allison

Since her kindergarten stage debut as a bovine, Allison has relished the power of story, the thrill of walking in the shoes of others, and, most importantly, spot-lighting the Ultimate Storyteller. She graduated from the prestigious Carnegie Mellon University then appeared on Broadway in Grease. Later Allison performed her original one-woman pieces for over 200,000 women at Women of Faith conferences.  The author of two books, she loves weaving Biblical principles and acting pieces together in unexpected ways as she teaches. Allison and her husband, a worship pastor, live in Tennessee with their two boys.

“Allison is a gifted writer, a brilliant dramatist, and a profound communicator of God’s truth.” – Sheila Walsh, bestselling author

“(Her) life-giving content...has the power to fill your sails with holy wind and literally change the trajectory of your story!” – Lisa Harper, bestselling author

“Allison shares stories of conquering fear, pain and rejection that uniquely paved the way toward growth, joy and wisdom. She teaches us to rise above it all and experience God’s beautiful light. You will most definitely be inspired.” – Scott Hamilton, Olympic figure skating champion, inspirational speaker
