Allison was born and raised in Houston, Texas and is a loyal graduate of Texas A&M University. She has been working in the cancer research department at Baylor’s Dan L Duncan Comprehensive Cancer Center for over 11 years and is the Lead Project Coordinator at Baylor College of Medicine. 

On June 7, 2012, at the age of 32 – and after years of struggling with Crohn’s disease – her life was turned upside down when her colonoscopy results showed Stage 2C colorectal cancer. She lived with a temporary ileostomy for two years as part of her treatment plan and is now in full remission.  

As a colon cancer advocate, Allison volunteers her time at the Colon Caner Coalition to help organize their 'Get Your Rear in Gear' 5K events.
