Summary Profile

Allison’s professional career began with diverse achievements as an entrepreneur. She created four successful businesses over the course of 25 years. It began with a thriving fine arts business and jewelry line, Massari Fine Arts, LLC. With characteristic vigor, she launched her coaching and speaking career. Within months she was coaching CEO’s, and within two years she was voted the “#1 Rising Star in Speaking” by the National Speakers Association. Allison found peace, purpose, and happiness after overcoming two extraordinary personal tragedies. In 1998, she survived a 60 mph car crash where she was trapped and burned alive; conscious the entire time. Just three years later she was hit again at 60 mph and sustained a closed-head brain injury. Allison has always believed in the miraculous. Her fiery determination and the love of family and friends helped bring her to a full recovery years later.  The triumph of her physical and emotional recovery inspired her to propel her business to pinnacle achievements. Allison has dedicated her speaking career to wellness, well-being, change, adversity and success – inspiring participants with tools to more effectively manage their lives. Her mission is to bring transformation to individuals, businesses and communities. She also enjoys delivering keynotes to healthcare audiences for CE credits – to heal burnout in medical workers and to enhance patient-centered care. Her message focuses on the power of the human connection. As a sought-after private coach, her highly effective methods have enabled her to form bonds as a trusted confidante to CEOs, executives and entrepreneurs. Allison captures the hearts of audiences and clients as she demonstrates how to move forward with speed and grace. Over a decade ago Allison Massari began helping children with severe burn injuries. Her revolutionary programs with these teens were founded in 1998 and they continue to transform young people’s lives. She named these programs, “The Roger Pepper Adventure Camps” after the brave man who pulled Massari from her car, saving her life and risking his own. Her work stems from a desire to give back and to be involved in the medical community that nurtured her as a child and gave her a second chance at life.
