Alison is in long-term recovery from alcohol and an eating disorder following a 30-year struggle with both. After 25-year career in advertising, Alison stepped away from the corporate world to focus on what truly mattered in her life, honoring her recovery and dedicating herself to serving others who seek the same freedom from addiction.
Alison shares her story and expressions of hope by speaking on the topic of midlife recovery at treatment centers, in support groups, and with other communities of those seeking change. She’s been the focus of many articles in publications such as the Chicago Sun-Times and Health Day News and has contributed to articles in Vogue, Forbes and Parenting Magazine. She is often asked to co-host webinars and to serve as featured speaker for teleconferences on the subject of recovery later in life and is an ongoing contributor to social media conversations relevant to the same.
She’s an active member of a 12-Step Recovery fellowship and serves on the Board of Directors for MentorCONNECT, the first global nonprofit online eating disorder mentoring community.
Alison is a writer and author of the forthcoming book, “Stop. Breathe. Recover” while she maintains her blog, “Alison’s Insights” focused on the life lessons she’s learned through the course of her recovery process.
