Allison is a fifth-generation Colorado native from the Telluride/Montrose area. Her Swedish ancestors arrived in Telluride to mine in the mid 1800s, and she graduated from the same high school as her great grandmother exactly 100 years later. Allison grew up on a working cattle ranch overlooking the beautiful San Juan mountains, which is still family owned and operated. Along with ranching, her father was president of a federal land bank supplying loans to farmers and ranchers and, upon retirement from banking, appraised land and ranches throughout western Colorado. Growing up, Allison was surrounded with an immense appreciation for the beauty and value of Colorado land.
Allison attended Colorado Mesa University with a degree in business and hospitality management. After a short stint in Park City as a sports massage therapist working with athletes training for the 2002 Salt Lake City Olympics, she moved to Denver and began schooling to obtain her stenographic skill set, which involves typing 260+ words per minute at 95% accuracy. She enjoyed a successful fast-paced 20-year career working as a court reporter throughout Boulder and Denver predominantly in criminal district court, along with civil litigation and remote Zoom depositions. As an opportunity arose for a lifestyle change, Allison embraced that change and was fortunate to move to Crested Butte and join the dynamic Bluebird Team to share her love of mountain life with prospective homeowners.
She is a marathoner, triathlete, and has participated in numerous trail running races where the challenge is in the uphill vertical. She loves traveling to Europe, sampling interesting wine varietals, and spending time with Kona her Boston Terrier, who can be seen strutting down Elk Avenue. She enjoys downhill skiing in the wintertime but can be found daily gliding around the Nordic cross-country trails with a smile.
