Allison is a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist certified by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. She completed her master’s degree in nutrition at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Prior to returning to school to study nutrition, Allison earned a BA in English at Messiah College and spent fourteen years working in the book-publishing industry. She also has an MA in Christian Formation and Ministry from Wheaton College.

Allison first came to Ascend as an intern while working on her nutrition degree and then joined them full time shortly after graduation. After watching a family member work to recover from an eating disorder, she gained much respect for the hard work and courage involved in that process. Now she values the opportunity to accompany others on their road to recovery and help them establish a healthy relationship with food.

Allison also facilitates client sessions with Chicago BioDenisty.
