Alison was born and raised here in the Pacific Northwest. She was very involved in athletic training during high school, which introduced her to sports medicine. After suffering from a knee injury and requiring surgery and rehabilitation, she realized Physical Therapy would be a very fun and rewarding career. Alison graduated from South Kitsap High School and then attended Olympic College in Bremerton, where she later graduated with an Associate of Applied Science in Physical Therapist Assistant. Alison is a strong believer that if you are not learning, you are not improving. She is actively studying to become a well-versed Physical Therapy Assistant, and has a passion for both sports rehab and fall prevention. Alison loves to educate her patients on life long skills related to managing their conditions, and teach them ways to continue to improve at home once they are no longer in need of Physical Therapy. Alison describes herself as an “old soul”. In her free time, she loves to do woodworking and DIY projects, go camping, hiking, ride quads, and even drive Demolition Derby cars.
