Alyson Kirchner was raised in a small, family-owned business, so she found the dairy industry to be a perfect fit. She earned a Bachelor of Science in corporate communications from Lamar University in Beaumont, Texas, and managed marketing efforts for Mobiloil Federal Credit Union and Aramark Higher Education, where she received numerous awards, including the Aramark Higher Education Leadership Award, Texas Credit Union League Marketing Award and the CUNA Marketing Council Marketing Award. Alyson lives in Houston, Texas with her two dachshunds.

Your food/nutrition mentor growing up:
I’d have to say my Dad. He started juicing fruits and vegetables for our family when I was a kid. We thought he was weird, when all along he was smart well beyond his years & I still use his Jack LaLanne juicer today.
