Alison Jacobson

Nationally acclaimed speaker, blogger and family safety expert Alison Jacobson, also known as The Safety Mom, has dedicated her life to educating women about health and safety issues that affect not only themselves, but everyone in their family. Alison is the mom of four children, stepmom and caregiver for her husband with Multiple Sclerosis, son with intellectual disabilities and mom who lives with her. Because of this Alison has become a vocal advocate for accessibility for those with both intellectual and physical disabilities. Alison also understands personal tragedy. In 1997 she lost her first son to Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS). It was from this tragedy that her desire to inform and educate people on ways to protect everyone in the family was born. Her ability to connect with people in a down-to-earth, uplifting and engaging manner while providing important information has made Alison a popular guest on many national television shows including CNN, Fox & Friends and The Doctors. Over the years Alison has worked as a spokesperson for some of the world’s leading brands including COX Communications, Toyota, Coca-Cola, AT&T, Johnson & Johnson, Unilever, Proctor & Gamble and Sylvania. Prior to her role in the child safety area, Alison was SVP at Weber Shandwick, one of the world’s largest PR firms, where she led business development initiatives for Fortune 500 companies and developed rebranding campaigns and launch programs for numerous consumer brands.
