GET TO KNOW
Dr. Alison was born and raised in Lagunitas, California (yes, it is a town, not just a great beer!). At the young age of 10, she broke her leg and from then on, knew that she wanted to pursue a career in helping people. She attended UC Santa Cruz where she played 4 years of collegiate basketball while obtaining a Bachelors of Science degree in Biology, with an emphasis on physical therapy and the human body. After graduation, she got her massage certification and began working in the office of her childhood chiropractor. In just 2 short weeks of working in the office, Dr. Alison realized that chiropractic was truly amazing, and would give her the tools to help people in the way that she always had imagined. A few months later, Dr. Alison began her first quarter at Life Chiropractic College West in Hayward! During her time in Hayward she discovered her passion of working with kiddos, thinking it truly was the most pure form of chiropractic. With kids, what you see is what you get!

She is also Webster Certified through the ICPA, a specific chiropractic technique specially for pregnant mamas. Dr. Alison finished her clinical requirements early, allowing her to work under the guidance of Acorn for her last quarter of school in the chiropractic equivalent of a residency program.
