A graduate from Ambrose University in Youth Ministry, Alison can also bring a faith element into her presentations as she was a youth pastor for 9 years. Wait, did you catch that? She was a youth pastor. That means she is anything but boring when it comes to faith. She doesn’t preach she makes truth come alive in a creative practical way. During her time as a youth pastor and beyond she played and coached predominantly girls’ volleyball and basketball at a local High school and played baseball on the teacher’s team. Sports has been a big part of her life along with music. Yep, she was a band kid. Still plays the trumpet to this day and a few other instruments you might see in her Pep Talk. Happy moments for Alison include being able to eat chewy candy or plantain chips, and being able to instill hope, encouragement and laughter.
