Patient Speaker

Allison knows that you have the power to transform lives. As an advocate for both patient and provider, Allison has an intimate understanding of the demands and challenges of the medical profession, and compelling authority to address the delicate nature of patient-centered care. She experienced firsthand the critical value of receiving personalized health care from committed leadership teams, and empathetic providers after surviving a life-threatening car accident where she suffered second and third degree burns on over 50 percent of her body.

In addition, raised by her father, a head and neck oncology surgeon, and her mother, a nurse, Allison was mentored in the world of medicine from an early age. Captivated by her father’s compassionate work, she shadowed him in his practice, and also worked in hospitals and medical office settings. Allison’s riveting and courageous journey from absolute loss to a triumphant and hope-filled life, addresses sensitive topics, shining light on the immense value you have to a patient who is suffering, helping to reinvigorate teams, and heal burnout in the workplace.
