Alison R

Alison is a busy local mom to two very spunky girls, ages 4 and 1 year old. In 2001, Alison made a wise decision to follow her then cute boyfriend {now handsome husband}, west to Colorado after graduating from the University of Kansas and has been enjoying all Denver has to offer since. Formerly a media and advertising sales professional, Alison spent the past 8 months getting her feet wet as a stay-at-home-mom until she caught the direct sales bug and decided to become an Ambassador for the health and wellness company, Plexus Worldwide. Alison loves fitness, beauty products, shopping, cooking, traveling and getting out into the Colorado sunshine as much as possible. Alison hopes her 14 years in Denver and 4 years as a Denver mom will add value to the Denver Metro Mom Blog Community. You can connect with Alison, {AKA DenverAli}, on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest and
