Music has been a passion for Allison since she was a small child. The first song that she sang in the church was "Jesus Loves Me" at the age of 3.  She has been singing ever since. She became a worship leader in 2010 while she attended Life Link Community Church in Marion, Ohio. After moving to Apple Valley in 2012, she and her family started attending Shepherd’s House. In 2013, she and her husband were asked to lead worship. They have been leading worship at Shepherd’s House since.
Her husband, Jason, plays the drums. They have 3 children, Abigail, Jonah, and Logan. As a family, they love doing what God has called them to do and count it as a blessing and privilege. They are thankful to be a part of what God is doing and continues to do at Shepherd’s House Church of the Nazarene.
