Based out of Philadelphia, Alison has been a member of the DealNews content team since 2008. She joined the Features team as a contributor to share the knowledge and experience that comes with being a daily deal-slinger. Prior to joining DealNews, Alison worked as a newsroom intern at CBS 3 Philadelphia, and frequently assisted with their consumer reports segments, researching such topics as credit card scams and hidden calories in healthy foods. (It was likely at that point that she realized her destiny.) In her freelance career, she has covered a variety of topics, such as technology, hockey, and education.
Alison is also responsible for 89% of the cat photos that appear on LCD deals.
