While many idolize Alise for her success on the bike, just as many idolize her for her presence off the bike. Although she holds many accolades to her name, Alise’s path to success has not come with-out road blocks around every bend. From growing up in Minnesota with 1/2 the riding time of her competitors, to 4 major surgical injuries in 4 straight seasons, to losing her mother to cancer at just 22, Alise has had a long uphill battle in her sporting career. However, despite the adversity, she has risen to every challenge and come back stronger and more competitive, leaving nothing but positive energy and a ‘Never Give Up’ attitude in her wake.
At 24, she is smart with a great humor and sensibility about her. She is confidence personified, without the conceit that you might expect from someone who has achieved so much so soon. Alise knows what it takes to succeed; her drive and work ethic are unparalleled. She is the total package - dedicated, smart, good-natured, outgoing, attractive, and above all, a champion.
