Allison has a passion for animals and went back to work at Hoerner Veterinary Hospital in 2015 and has been at the hospital since Dr. Hayes bought it in 2018.

Allison has a son who keeps her on her toes and motivates her daily. She also has four dogs, three cats, fish, and chickens. She loves being outside, horseback riding, rodeos, spending time with family and friends, and drawing.

Allison started her mini farm with one horse, one miniature horse, and one mini jack. Every day is an exciting adventure for her and she loves every minute! She always tries to see the positive side of things and says, “Life is too short to be negative!”
