Allison grew up on a small family farm in Riverton, Utah, where farm cat Tuffy ruled the roost and oversaw the comings and goings of Tony the horse and Tinkerbell the dog (just to name a few of the Dansie farm’s 4-legged residents).
Allison completed an M.A. in Linguistics at the University of Utah and then left home to pursue a teaching career overseas. She’s been lucky enough to volunteer with animal rescue efforts in Turkey, the Czech Republic, Japan, Portugal, and China over the years.
She and her husband now happily reside in Torrey with their 14-year-old dog named Güzel (which means “all things beautiful” in Turkish).
Allison’s thrilled to be part of the CCAW team and dedicate herself to the animals and community of Wayne County.
