Who is Coach Allyson?

I started my journey as a molecular biologist with a Master's degree working in biopharmaceutical industry over twenty years ago, developing life-saving drugs. Although it had been a rewarding career helping bring treatments to patients, I also realized that our treatments have been focused mostly on chronic diseases which usually require expensive long-term medications with potential side effects. In the meantime, after years of busy life juggling work, family, and everything else in life, I started to encounter problems with chronic diseases myself, just like many people around me. That was a huge wakeup call. I delved into research and found that there are ways for us to prevent, delay, control, or even reverse chronic diseases to reclaim health by adopting a right lifestyle. There is so much each individual can do to control their own destiny in health and wellbeing. That was when I decided to take on coaching to help empower others. With my strong science background in medical research and drug development and a passion to help people combat diseases and improve health and wellbeing, I am ready to meet where you are and apply the evidence-based, science-guided, and personalized approach to partner with you on your journey towards a healthy and fulfilling life.
