In my continued work with Alison she continues to amaze and surprise me with her keen listening and deep questions. She's asked me the questions I needed to hear, so that I could hear my own answers to my BIG questions. It is so nourishing to hear our own voice in those answers.

Alison is a great coach who really listens and asks insightful clarifying questions. Through our coaching work I've been able to be more focused on what I am actually looking for in my career and ways to build on resources I already have in my current job role. She's great at connecting the dots between ideas that I was struggling with to help align them with the actions I'm taking in reaching out to professional colleagues.
