Alison started in the therapeutic riding community as a volunteer in 2000 at NCTR in Burtonsville, MD. In 2004, she started volunteering for the therapeutic riding program at Rock Creek Park Horse Center in Washington, DC while she was an art teacher at a variety of schools and programs in the DC area.
She became an instructor at Rock Creek Park Horse Center in 2012 and became a PATH Intl Registered Instructor in 2016. When her mentor and fellow instructor retired in 2018, Alison took over the therapeutic riding program at RCPHC. Alison was very excited to join LTR in the summer of 2021.
When she is not teaching, Alison enjoys going to the beach and taking photos with her husband Pete and daughter Zoe. She also spends much of her free time going to many horse shows that Zoe competes in.
