Alison grew up paddling and cross-country skiing the wildlands of northern Minnesota and southwestern Ontario.
Her love of the outdoors and desire to protect wild places led her to Bowdoin College for a degree in Environmental Studies, and eventually to law school at the University of Colorado.
Before joining TWS in 2014, Alison clerked for the Honorable Gregory Hobbs Jr. on the Colorado Supreme Court, and spent four years litigating public lands issues on behalf of TWS and other conservation groups as an attorney with the Rocky Mountain Office of Earthjustice.
As counsel and planning specialist at TWS, Alison focuses her energy on travel planning and off-road vehicle issues for the National Forest and BLM Action Centers.
In her spare time, Alison can be found exploring Colorado's wild places by foot or ski with her husband Adam, son Finley, and two dogs.
