Growing up in South Burlington, VT, Alison gained an appreciation for nature and outdoor recreation. After moving to Albany to go to school 15 years ago, her career has ranged from working for United University Professions, the City of Albany, and Environmental Advocates of New York.
She achieved a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from St. Michael’s College and a Masters in Public Policy from the Rockefeller College at SUNY Albany.
Alison enjoys being active and spending time with her family. She likes a good murder mystery, chocolate and the beach. Her goal is to visit all the national parks in the United States.
We are happy to have her take on the important role of Director of Parks Program here at Parks & Trails New York!
