Allison is a product of the Midwest, knowing early on in college that Alaska was calling to her. Allison is a member of Beautiful Savior Lutheran Church, but also participates regularly in the Handbell Choir at Anchorage Lutheran Church. After spending initial years at Anchor teaching a year of 5th Grade and then many years at the Junior High level, she values the opportunity to make an even greater difference for the students and families of our school as the administrator. Outside interests involve curling and spending as much time as possible with her beautiful labrador (Deacon) whom she has trained and certified as a therapy dog, something in which she also engages the students of Anchor Lutheran.
