Overview

  • Allison has over 20 years experience as a practitioner of recreation and recreational therapy, with 15 years as a Certified Therapeutic Recreation Specialist. She received the Faculty Senate Excellence in Teaching award in 2007-2008 from the Metropolitan State College of Denver. Her research interests are two-pronged. She is interested in both disability issues and the aging population, as they relate to leisure function. She is specifically interested in where these two topics intersect, whether this means having lived a lifetime with disability and growing older or aging into disability. Aging with lifelong disability is a passion.
