Allison is a native Texan who has recently returned to Texas after spending an exciting decade living in London, England. She was a Cum Laude Graduate of Duke University in 1997 where she received her Bachelor of Science in Health Psychology. Allison later received her Master of Physical Therapy and a Doctor of Physical Therapy from the Department of Physical Therapy and Human Movement Sciences at Northwestern University Medical School in 2000 and 2002, respectively.
Allison has worked exclusively in pediatrics and has treated children with a wide range of neurological and orthopedic conditions in hospitals, clinics, schools and in the home. Following, she is experienced in working with children with all levels of ability and a wide variety of conditions. Allison has a particular interest in treating infants and children with developmental delay, torticollis, coordination disorders, gravitational insecurity/fear of movement, gait abnormalities (to include toe walking and poor balance) and neurological conditions. She has worked extensively with children with talipes equinovarus (clubfoot) at Texas Scottish Rite Hospital and continues to enjoy helping these children develop gross motor skills while monitoring the position of their feet. She aims to develop therapy programs that are directed towards functional goals that are most important to the child/family and are able to be integrated into the child’s daily activities.
