Alyson attended The Donoho School in Anniston, AL where she graduated from in 1998.  After high school, she went on to Tuscaloosa to attend The University of Alabama.  She graduated in May 2003 with a degree in Business Management.  Then after graduation, she moved back to Anniston to take a position in the accounting department of the cleaning and restoration company her father owned for 25 years.  When he retired in 2007, Alyson and her husband Scott purchased the business.  Her son, Beau was born in 2008 and daughter, Tori in 2011.  Scaling back her duties to be able to stay home with the children was great but now both kids are in school so she has taken more roles in the business.  Alyson not only handles payroll for the cleaning & restoration company but also their email marketing, insurance CE classes, and events.  She is the education coordinator handling all scheduling, registration, emails, marketing, and all class operations (minus the teaching part) for Disaster Academy.

Alyson is IOT certified in Mold and IICRC certified in CCT, UFT, CRT, RCT, RRT, LCT, FSRT, OCT, WRT, & ASD, as well as has a Master Textile Cleaner, Master Fire & Smoke Restorer, & Journeyman Water Restorer status.  She has a passion for wanting to help others succeed.
