Alyson grew up in Woodbury, MN and now resides in Mounds View with her husband, Brian, and two sons, Ronan and Gavin, as well as her dog, Georgia.
She graduated from Anoka-Ramsey Community College with her Associate in Applied Science degree for Physical Therapist  Assistant.  In 2004, she earned a certificate in therapeutic massage from Sister Rosalind’s School of Professional Massage, and  enjoys being able to blend the two professions to facilitate healing in others.  Alyson was drawn to a career in the health field after  experiencing various injuries from rowing and distance running.  Physical therapy, massage, and chiropractic were vital in  resolving  injuries to continue the activities she loves.
In her free time, Alyson enjoys spending time with family, serving with the elementary special needs program at her church,  running, and has completed 3 ultramarathons.
