Alison currently resides in Kirkland, WA with her husband, Mark, and 3 boys, Nathan (6), Tyler (4), and Zach (1.5). She works as an Investment Associate at RBC Wealth Management and helps out where possible as an assistant track & field/ cross country coach at Northwest University (where her husband is the head coach).

Alison found running success in high school, as a top distance competitor at the prep state and national levels. She competed at the University of Washington, but her career was cut short by repeated stress fractures. After a hiatus from competitive running, Alison returned to the sport after having her first son, Nathan in 2012. She feels extremely blessed for every opportunity to train, compete and give back to the sport through coaching and volunteering.
