“Working with Alison for the past year and half was a pivotal moment for me. Thanks to her guidance, I realized that I could reach for anything I put my mind into. Dreams turn from wishful thinking to planned goals that can happen in a year. She reactivates that inner voice that holds us accountable and strengthens ownership of our destiny.

Debra Mansfield

Director of Operations


On Take the Reins: Be the CEO of Your Life Workshop: “Great workshop! Alison is energizing and hugely motivating. The workshop is packed with lessons and tools to work throughout the workshop and after. I am so excited and inspired to put everything I learned to work! Highly recommend it.”

Stephanie Seril

Vice President, Marketing


On Take the Reins: Be the CEO of Your Life Workshop: “Be the CEO of your Life could not have come at a better time. Grappling with the knowledge that there's a version of your life that you know can exist, but not really knowing how to get there is something I think a lot of us struggle with. Working through these huge goals that we have, but in a way that breaks them down and makes them much more attainable (if you show up for yourself) was game changing. My life might be in store for some very big changes, but for the first time in months I feel prepared to take those head on.”

Desiree Therianos

Human Resources Leader


On Take the Reins: Be the CEO of Your Life Workshop: “I love how creative and simple the framework was. Alison is a great coach and this program is not only fun and engaging but dives deep into your desires as a leader, tactics on how to identify priorities, and how to think about investing in yourself to realize your vision! Most workshops are fun in the moment, but my creative wheels are turning well past the end of this workshop."

John Hanley

Managing Director, Triton Leadership


“In all my years of teaching transformational training & coaching skills to prospective practitioners, I have rarely come across someone with as much natural ability as Alison to communicate powerfully & precisely. She is a gifted coach who can produce desired results for virtually any individual or corporate client.”

Jenna Antos

Sales and Business Development Professional, US


"When I partnered up with Alison, I was at a place in my professional life where I had accepted the status-quo. I had lost track of what I wanted and what could be for me. The irony at the time was that I was successful, on the top of my professional game, and perceived by others as a rockstar! But I wasn’t fulfilled, and I was losing my spark. Alison dug deep with me into the depths of my soul, and she handed me the match to relight my fire! Alison’s coaching style revolves around honesty and self-discovery. Each session invigorated me to think outside of the box and create a new perspective to live by, balancing the personal and the professional. Alison is real, raw, and relentless in her pursuit to bring out the best in her clients."

Nicola Silver

BioMed Executive, Bristol Myers Squibb, US


"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!"

Emmanuelle Luba 

Partner Marketing Director, Cloud Security - Paris, France


"Coaching from The Lens Leadership has completely changed my approach to work & helped me improve the way I come across as a professional, a leader, a wife, and a mother. I love the way I am being challenged to think outside the box, and how I am now creating new habits that serve me as a leader at work, with my family and with my community. I am learning that slowing down my pace can magically impact my results for the better! I take great pleasure in reflecting and learning from the challenges Alison gives me prior to each session. Having partnered in building my personal plan for 2023, can't wait to see what's in store for the year ahead! I definitely recommend coaching with The Lens Leadership."

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

Managing Partner, Collaboration Systems Group, LLC, US


"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!"


Shadna W.

"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.
