Hey! I'm Allison

I'm so glad you found me. I'm Allison, a Photographer, and Personal Development & Business Coach. My purpose in life is to help. That simple. Being a helper is my zone of genius, and I am skilled in seeing the possibilities, filling gaps, finding solutions, and inspiring and uplifting people. I absolutely love seeing people win! I've spent 20 years developing world-class training programs (ie. e-learning, online courses) for some of your favorite products and brands. However, what is more important to me is the impact I can have on women's lives, especially women of color. My coaching program empowers women, to affirm who they are, decide what they want, and START. This could mean starting a new chapter in life or leaping into entrepreneurship. My photography business empowers women to affirm who they are through the power of images. Over the years I found myself using my coaching skills in my photography business and my photography to help empower people in my coaching sessions. Like me, you don't have to choose. You can use all of your gifts to create the life you desire. I can absolutely guide you on how to do this.

My favorite mantra: Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can.~Arthur Ashe

I look forward to working with you!




Connecting with Allison is one of the best things I have done for my business and my mindset. From the moment I told her about my business goals and aspirations, she immediately saw the vision I pictured and so much more. She has a strategic way of asking questions that helped me reflect on my business in a more meaningful way and guided me to creating more specific messaging for my passion. Her guidance was not only knowledgeable but also compassionate and approachable."

Working with Allison has been an amazing experience. I connected with Affirm as I was starting my first LLC. I was new and like most new business owners, finding my way. Allison was encouraging and demonstrated knowledge in her expertise that made me comfortable. She established trust at the onset. Today I can say that I’ve reached success because of my work with her. I’m looking forward to even bigger stories of success as I stay connected with Allison and Affirm!"

Allison is a great coach!  She is solution focused and excellent at helping others see the big picture.  She is honest and straightforward in her approach.  She doesn’t believe she has all the answers, but rather listens, provides challenges, and encourages honest reflection in order to help clients experience growth. She encourages commitment to action as she only wants to see you winning and at your best."

- Regina Williams, LCMHC

“Allison's gift is helping you figure things out! She has the ability to break down complex subjects and make them easy to understand. She helped me figure out what I'm really good at and should be consulting on rather than staying in my comfort zone. She is also really compassionate and patient! I learned A LOT from just one coaching session.”
