"Alison is a phenomenal coach who demonstrates professionalism and confidence. Within 6 months, she helped guide me to make an important personal life decision. I could not have done this without her and The Lens Leadership program.  All coaching sessions are very productive and goal oriented. Alison kept me on track and held me accountable for my follow-through and action items at every session. She is charismatic, positive, and enthusiastic. Her personable, caring, and empathetic nature allowed me to feel comfortable and to be myself.  Although coaching can be tough at times, Alison is encouraging and supportive. Her communication skills are outstanding, which allowed me to feel engaged and connected during all sessions. Alison held me accountable and stretched me outside of my comfort zone which then allowed me the ability to grow and try new unique activities. Alison is the real deal…she helped me achieve results. I look forward to continuing to utilize her as my coach. I highly recommend her!"

"The opportunity to work with Alison has truly been once in a lifetime. As a young professional new to the workforce, Alison has encouraged me, brought my passions to life, and helped me to both identify and pursue my long-term goals. From the start, this experience has been empowering and with Alison’s guidance I am challenged every meeting. Leadership coaching has made me recognize my unique qualities and strengths. I am more confident than ever and have a much more positive view of myself and abilities."



Mouna Lyoubi

International Development Consultant, Morocco


"Alison's coaching created a neutral and safe space for me to face and accept the path I have designed for myself. It allowed me to identify my values that have, for so long, accompanied my journey, without getting the central position they deserve in my choices. I was able to open my eyes to new possibilities ahead that orbit around the values I cherish. I highly recommend Alison’s approach to anyone that wishes to see the global picture, and to paint their future life’s canvas."



Paul Werner

Vice President, Global Technology company, US


"Alison brings a unique mix of business, wellness and personal experience to her practice. She’s had a successful career as a marketing executive in global technology firms. She understands the push and pull of competing demands in a high-pressure environment. However, what will surprise you the most is her wellness and healing journey. Hers is a story of loss, determination and ultimately triumph that we can all learn from. When you combine her business success and personal journey you have a powerful cocktail of real world experience that makes her coaching practice highly impactful."


Rob Rosiello

Chief Revenue Officer, Cybersecurity IT, US


"Alison is uniquely skilled when it comes to connecting and communicating - blending client needs, industry trends and best practices, as well as the organization's alignment to execute.  She brings a natural, well- rounded approach to every engagement with her intelligence, curiosity, energy, pragmatism, and the art of the possible."

Mark Schlicher

"Alison is a brilliant communicator, and unique in that in a room of tens or hundreds, she finds a way to connect with you on a personal level.  Her messaging has always challenged me to find unique approaches to my business, and different ways of communicating my message.  Her willingness to listen, hear, and understand the context of my question and follow up in a meaningful way is unparalleled. Alison exudes confidence and professionalism, and one cannot help but to feel inspired by her presence."


Kowshik Bhat

Vice President, Platform and Portfolio Marketing, Cloud Security, US


"Her passion and zeal for customers is her brand and very evident in every interaction I have had with her. She can instantly build rapport with any audience from C-level to sales executives to channel partners. What is unique about Alison is that she constantly inspires everyone around her to ask - why does it matter to the customer - which has served her well to be a prolific marketer and to speak in a language that emotionally connects with her audience."


Human Resources Executive, US


"Wow. It has made all the difference. This is helping me embody this truth that all projects and life pivots start, and are sustained, with small daily doses. I have been spending at least 10 minutes a day writing about my plans and future work and getting things clearer and clearer. Thanks so much for your time, support, and encouragement. I am refreshed and ready to keep going!"

"My experience working with Alison has been a huge success. She is very motivating, and a wonderful listener.  She helped me to clarify my goals, set a clear vision statement, identify the obstacles holding me back – and now I am working on them. Now, I recognize the power of baby steps and staying consistent. During our time together, I improved my self-confidence, and more importantly she has helped me understand that I am on a journey to be my true self."
