Past Lives

Love for the PNW

Alison is a huge fan of the Pacific Northwest (Go Hawks!) and is continuously stunned by the views of Mt. Rainier on her commute to the office and around the Seattle area for the past 20 years.


Before making the move to the Pacific Northwest, Alison attended university on the East Coast, at SUNY Brockport, where she obtained a Bachelor of Science in Psychology.
