Hi! Welcome to The Modern Savvy!
Since 2010, Florida lifestyle blogger Alyson has been passionate about sharing all the things: personal style, motivation, family, health and the honest realities of a chaotic life, all in a relatable, inspiring way.
I started The Modern Savvy based on what I would discuss with my girlfriends. I want you to have the same feeling here…. like we just chatted over coffee or wine, mixed in with a dance party and kick-butt motivation session, of course.
I believe we as women deserve to seek out our joy, show up for our own lives and fight for our biggest dreams — I’m now doing motivational speaking to talk more to women around the country about it!
Maybe you’re wondering… why, Alyson, do you have this emphasis on personal growth and motivation? Because this girl you see here was temporarily and suddenly paralyzed from the chest down on her 30th birthday, with a four-month old at home, and unsure if she’d ever walk again. I did though, I fought back through an insane journey with more life lessons than one can imagine and plenty that I’m grateful I can share with others. Each day is not easy, but being honest with myself and others has led me to such joy and fulfillment that I want all women to experience it in whatever way is most meaningful to them.
So you’ll notice here and on social media I share all the truths: I see a therapist, I’ve had body issues (and am a WW lifetimer), those major health issues, we adopted our son (and had a failed adoption), and I’ve shared grief following my dad’s death, for example. They’re not easy topics, but they’re important ones that I hope we can journey through together.
