Alison hails from the small town of Kimper, Kentucky. This southern belle is enjoying her third season as a Colts cheerleader and is honored to serve as a squad captain for a second time. "Being from eastern Kentucky, I wasn't brought up in a big NFL family since there wasn't a team close to us!" After attending the University of Louisville, she became Director of Sales and Marketing for ESG Security in Indianapolis. She is now a proud Hoosier and avid Colts fan.
Alison started dancing at a young age. At just four-years-old, she began with ballet and tap and then progressed to jazz, hip-hop, and modern dance. "I was a member of Pike County Performing Arts Show Choir for six years and performed in Branson, Disney World, San Diego, and Hawaii." She went on to serve as captain of her high school dance team and performed with a non-profit dance company throughout college.
Cheering for the Colts is a way for Alison to showcase her many talents and give back to the community. "I just think it is great that the Colts are a grassroots organization and love to give back to the fans." Her smile is practically contagious to every fan she meets, although she had to adjust to being in the spotlight. "I never thought someone would actually want my autograph!"
Over the past three years, Alison has made some lasting friendships among the squad. "We have girls that are students, teachers, engineers, doctors, and more and it is so great that we can all come together and form an amazing, close-knit squad." Some of her favorite memories stem from the 2006 military tour in Japan and Hawaii. "I thought it was great that I was a part of a group that could put smiles on the faces of all those hard-working men and women."
In her free time, she enjoys bowling, bingo, and choreographing cheerleading and dance teams. 2008 has been an exciting year for Alison because she is enjoying the fun of being a newlywed. She recently settled into a home with new her husband in the Carmel area. She cannot wait to see what the future holds!
