Allison is an Olympic Silver Medalist (1996) and former World-Record Holder in the sport of swimming. Throughout her athletic career, she explored countless methods to improve health and performance. She enjoys passing along all of the information and skills that helped her become the best in the world and leading people towards better performance and an improved experience of life and work.  

Programs and services range from keynote speaking, workplace leadership and collaboration programs, ergonomics consultations, sport-specific movement and rehab program modification, and swim technique coaching. 

Along with being a successful athlete, Allison is also an artist (view current pieces for sale here). Many people don't realize that the Olympic Games originated as a showcase of personal achievement in any arena of talent. Allison embodies the Olympic spirit of pursuing personal excellence. She is a part of the Art of the Olympians and The Al Oerter Foundation and Center of Excellence  - two groups of Olympians dedicated to helping others, spreading the message that we all have a personal best, and encouraging people and kids to work at being the best version of themselves as possible. Allison is also developing World-Wide WaterSafe (WWS) - learn-to-swim programs for underserved communities. Everybody deserves the chance to gain an education on how to be safe in the water.  


This was my favorite achievement in the world of sport. I set this world record at the age of 16. It was one of the last races in a long competition shrouded by suspected drug use by Team China as you may be able to infer from the announcer's commentary.  I beat the girl on drugs and set a world record that stood for 15 years, one of the longest-standing records on the books. Crowds at these sorts of competitions don't usually unite in celebration, but on this day, at the end of that race, the entirety of the crowd erupted in applause. It was also the first time that I learned that my awareness of my own body was one of the advantages I could foster with dedication and learning.
