Allison was born in Florida but grew up right here in central Ohio. She started diving in 2011, during a high school Marine Biology trip to Forfar Field Station, on Andros Island in the Bahamas. Her favorite course she has taken so far is the Ice Diving course because it is exhilarating and incredibly peaceful all at once. Plus, people think you are insane for enjoying it. As a SCUBA instructor, she aspires to inspire. The more people she can introduce to the beauty of the underwater world, the more we will all actively work toward protecting it.
