Originally from Atlanta, Georgia, Allison received her Occupational Therapy Assistant degree from Cabarrus College of Health Sciences in Concord, NC. She became an OT to continue her love of teaching but in a therapeutic environment. She has a Masters in Fine Arts and taught at several universities in PA and NJ before moving to North Carolina. She also works with acute and inpatient rehabilitation at Rowan Medical Center.
The best part of working with children is seeing them light up as they master a new skill. Teaching kids independence and becoming successful in their everyday activities is rewarding, but doing it in a fun way gives them more enjoyment and increased success! In my spare time I enjoy being with my family, working in my clay studio, yoga, biking, running, swimming, gardening, and hiking.
