    Mark/Joan and Family - I cannot tell you how sorry I am for your loss. Alison was one of the first people I met when I moved to DC for grad school. We often walked to and from the metro station together and she made my acclimation to the area so much...  more

    Mark and I worked together. When he brought the team together and introduced us to Alison, we were all affected by her kind, adventurous personality. I’ll always remember the dinner at y'alls house. You both made the power couple team and it was a...  more

    Alison was truly the bright light on our team. Although we worked a fairly serious topic Alison knew how to insert levity and humor to keep us all laughing every day. She made it fun to come to work. I was honored to celebrate this special day with...  more

    Alison and I were roommates at Roanoke College, sorority sisters, and we traveled abroad together during the summer of 2000. She was such a great travel companion and friend. She was a quietly passionate person and a joy to be around. This picture is...  more

    This photo is from Diwali 2017 in Jaipur, India. Not pictured, hours of us trying to find the best and most auspicious bangle combos in the city and trying to decide how much hena is too much (answer, there is not “too much”). I’ll miss our world...  more

    Mark, Joan, and family,
    I met Alison in 2015 when I went to HQ. I admired her knowledge, her professionalism, her positive can do attitude, and her ability to think outside the box, adding value where ever she went. She will be missed.

    Mark and Joan and all of Alison’s family and friends, I’m so incredibly sorry for your loss. I found this photo of us from 2008 when we laid wreaths at Arlington. She was kind, generous, and brilliant. We were all better for knowing her.

    I had the pleasure of traveling with Alison to Bangkok last April. She was an absolute joy to travel with and so knowledgeable about other cultures! We will miss her so much.

      Nileah Bell Oh my goodness! This is great. I remember riding over to Schach's house in the tuktuk and we had been warned that we would get wet. Sure...ok. So then we turned a corner on a little Bangkok street, and this little girl had a hot pink bucket filled with...  more

    This is how I remember Alison. This is our 5th grade yearbook (I’m above her and to the right). She’s highlighted in pink as one of my good friends. We haven’t talked in over 20 years but I enjoyed following her Facebook posts on her travels and...  more

    On our girl trip to Asia in 2015, our hotel in Laos was SO PROUD to show us to our room...which they had decked out as the honeymoon suite. We laughed about this for the rest of the trip. Alison, I'd still snuggle with you any time. I miss you. ❤
