Alison coordinates the planning and production of on-site and online educational opportunities for Maddie's Institute®. She comes to Maddie's Fund® from the field of television where, as an independent producer, she traveled the world capturing live concerts for PBS, documenting 2,000 year-old monuments in China, serializing Flemish classics for Dutch TV, and crafting an array of Emmy® award winning programs. Along the way, she produced marketing videos for a variety of multinational corporations.
When her neighbor's kitten somersaulted into her home 21 years ago, Alison was immediately smitten. That prompted her to volunteer as a cat foster and socializer. The neighbors moved a year later, but Murphy the cat stayed and became Alison's greatest teacher of patience and unconditional love. Alison was recently adopted by a brown tabby named Krissie.
