For sixteen years, Alison Marie Young-Herron has professionally produced shows and events throughout the community… something she has enjoyed doing all her life just for fun—most often as one of the entertainers. She has brought local favorites like J.P. Patches and Stan Boreson to the stage at community events, and shared the stage with celebrities such as Michael McLean and Don Aslett… and since becoming a grandmother, has danced for audiences at Key Arena for Seattle SuperSonics games, and on stage at the Evergreen State Fair with Weird Al Yankovic.

Alison has been a dance & musical theatre instructor and performance team coach since 1999, and is a founder and co-owner of Applause Studio in Mill Creek, Washington (2004—present). She has taught and directed large and small groups of all ages, including overseeing rehearsals and performances of a regional dance festival that had a cast of over 1250 dancers and singers.

Ms. Herron has worked for a variety of companies, doing customer service, office management, public relations, events & promotions, and sales. She was one half of a G-rated singing & dancing telegram business, the Song & Dance Company, and an award-winning Lip Sync artist.

As a writer, she has seen her work published in several newspapers, online magazines, and books, including, Latter-Day Woman Magazine, the Mill Creek View newspaper, and True Miracles with Genealogy. Her teaching and public speaking experience includes a variety of venues, from small classrooms in educational and religious settings, to larger gatherings of business people, and over a thousand audience members at places such as Benaroya Hall in Seattle, WA.

Alison and her husband Sid are a Great Expectations success couple, and as such, have done many promotional radio and television spots. They have five children and seven grandchildren, and live with their energetic dogs Zeke and Max, and lazy cats Gus and Grizabella. They enjoy theatre, music, reading, family history, hiking, & photography.
