About The Author
Allison is best described as structured free-spirit. Her creative nature entices her to dream big, but her structured side keeps her grounded so that she can carry out those big ideas.
Allison has never encountered a dilemma that wasn’t “figure-out-able”. She enjoys finding solutions to common motherhood-related problems and sharing them with others. This drive to help others live a less complicated life led her to a career in Marriage and Family Therapy. After some time spent with families in a therapy setting, Allison knew she had more to offer than the confines of therapy would allow.
Her parenting website, Our Small Hours, was born out of her desire to share her solutions with moms through self-disclosure. Her book, Secrets of a Happy Mom, focuses heavily on the lessons Allison learned as a new mother and the changes she made in order to have more joy in motherhood.
