Alison Berna is a working mom based in New York City.
She is the co-founder of AppleSeeds Play, an all in one play space for families with children newborn to five. An avid runner, dedicated Yogi and newly minted adventurer, Alison recently joined a team of five other runners (and the only woman) to help guide the first blind athlete, Dan Berlin to complete the Grand Canyon Rim to Rim to Rim trail run–consisting of 46 miles, 25,000 feet of climbing over 28 hours. Their effort was to help raise money and awareness for Blind Institute of Technology and Foundation Fighting Blindness.
Alison shares the challenges of being a working mom, how she became a budding entrepreneur from her days working at NBC and UNICEF and how her passion to help others achieve their goals has given her a second wind to live a more meaning and inspiring life.
