Growing up on the eastern shore of Maryland, Alison grew to love animals of all shapes and sizes. Today she lives in the small town of Snow Hill with her girlfriend and a house full of creatures. While working for the Maryland Park Service, Alison developed a passion for the care of animals, the conservation of natural resources, and environmental education. She has had the opportunity to handle and care for a variety of animals to include reptiles, birds of prey, and small and large domestic animals. In her spare time she enjoys painting, going antique shopping, and watching 90s movies.
