A former investment banker, in 2009 she turned her passion into a business — having previously renovated more than 15 homes in her “spare” time. With Rockwood, Allison has managed to combine her financial know-how with her keen design eye and passion for customer service, leading her residential construction company to the top in the city of Calgary and beyond.
In the eight years since the company’s inception, Allison has been honoured as a four-time WXN Canada’s Most Powerful Women winner and in 2016 was inducted into the WXN Hall of Fame. Between 2014 and 2016, she consistently placed in the top five on PROFIT/Chatelaine Magazine’s W100 Canada’s Top Female Entrepreneurs; was shortlisted as a finalist for the E&Y Entrepreneur of the Year Awards, Prairies Region in 2013; in 2014, was one of Business in Calgary’s Leaders of Tomorrow; and in 2015 won the prestigious Momentum Award at the RBC Canadian Women Entrepreneur Awards, presented by Women of Influence.
