She is a freelance writer for Marin Magazine in California and was a contributing writer for the book “Project You”. Allison is the Founder of Sprig and Glow, a blog dedicated to a healthy lifestyle.
Allison’s system is one of total integration: effective skincare at the hands of optimal products, healthful food, active lifestyle, regular exercise and the Balance of Body, Mind and Spirit. Allison started Spring and Glow after extensive work testing beauty products from all over the world and researching food and wellness practices. She now coaches clients on what it takes to transform skin at any age through customized, results-oriented methods to suit individual skincare needs.
Since shifting from a decade-long career in tech, Allison’s true passion for aesthetics led her to a position as a Clinical Aesthetician with Robert Aycock MD Aesthetic Surgery Laser & Skin Care Center, where she specialized in pre- and post-procedure skin preparation and rejuvenation. She then spent several years at Skin Spirit Medical Spa in Mill Valley, CA. Today Allison is a Master Clinical Aesthetician and Medical Assistant at Hayes Valley Medical and Esthetics in Larkspur, CA. She is certified in Micro-penning, Dermaplaning, advanced peels & resurfacers, microdermabrasion, and micro-current, cool sculpting, Oxygen and LED treatments and Elemis Biotec Facial Therapy. She has completed advanced training in a multitude of skincare lines and is in development of a signature skincare line.
When Allison isn’t at work she is probably blogging about spas around the world or on the sidelines of her two teenager’s lacrosse games. She has been a volunteer and supporter of “Adopt a Family of Marin” for over a decade, helping low-income families find the sustained support that they need.
