Allison holds an advanced master’s degree from Florida Atlantic University.  She proudly considers herself a sober warrior and is a passionate advocate, both on a local and national level, for addiction and mental health issues.

Why I work at HHH:  Working with horses at HHH is so healing. The way horses are sensitive and can connect to the client’s feelings is amazing to witness.  The clients struggle with many different issues as they walk into the arena.  After they connect with the horses and engage in the therapeutic equine work, they walk out in a much calmer and mindful state. It is truly amazing!”
