Alison is a lover of boybands, cheese, and a good leather jacket (not always in that order). Born and raised on the Jersey Shore, she left her career as a radio personality to move to Texas with the love of her life, Ed. Since moving to Austin, she became a wife, and mama to two sweet little boys Simon (2018) and Arlo (2021). She loves salsa dancing, nail salons that serve champagne, and has an Mmmbop tattoo. Although she misses her family, the seasons, and the sea back East, Alison is happy to call ATX home with her boys. You can find Alison on Instagram @aliwontshutup
