Allison is a graduate of Colonial Heights High School and went on to pursue her love of art by attending John Tyler Community College before graduating from VCU. She worked as an interior designer for many years and later became an art teacher at Richmond Christian School. During her career as a designer, she had the privilege of being on the design team for the renovation of the Richmond Capitol. Feeling led in a different direction, Allison became involved in the homeschool community where all three of her children, Jordan, Jonathan, and Landon graduated, Landon from Bridge Academy. She has been teaching elementary, middle school and high school art at Bridge Academy for the past 6 years. Approximately six years ago, Allison began working part time with those battling addictions. It was through the merging of her love of teaching and her desire to help others that led her down another path. She began working at a substance abuse recovery facility in expressive art therapy helping those in recovery express through art what they cannot express in words. This led her back to school where she obtained her BS in both Art and Addiction studies at Liberty University graduating Summa Cum Laude in 2019. She is currently working on her Master’s in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Liberty University full time with the future plans to become a therapist.
