Alison D'Arrigo

Alison gets our clients from point A to point B without having to think of anything in between. Anticipates needs; minimizes hassles; remains calm; maintains humor. Was once so focused on everyone else's smooth travel that she didn't notice herself standing in an airport with her pants on backwards.
