Posted by Sasha at 10:03 PM ET

Original member of Swarm Performance team

Allison, who began dancing at the age of two in Los Angeles, was one of the four original members of the Swarm performance team. Before joining the Swarm, Allison was a four-year member of the Minnesota Vikings Cheerleaders. A graduate of University of St. Thomas, Allison is currently utilizing her entrepreneurial expertise through consulting work with startup companies. Allison finds a great sense of accomplishment in helping entrepreneurs put a plan in place to help their business dreams grow.

Allison served as Team Captain of the Vikings cheerleaders, traveling across North America performing, judging and teaching dance. She was also the featured cover model for the first ever Vikings Cheerleader Calendar, and was selected as the 2003 NFL Pro Bowl Cheerleader for her team. She continues to work with the Vikings Cheerleaders by serving on their Alumni committee.

One of the original members of the Swarm performance team, Allison took the 2006 season off to have her baby, before returning for 2007.

"The excitement from the fans the first season was more than we expected for a rookie team." said Allison. "It feels like I never left. Most of the original fans are still around and it's been fun to meet all of the new fans!"

Despite her full schedule, Allison feels her most important job is her family, and says she and her husband stay very busy chasing around their one-year-old daughter, Ivory.
