Triumph Over Tragedy
Speaker, Artist, and Transformation Coach
About Allison Massari
mission is to relieve human suffering. She has become a fiery
voice for the potent power of belief, compassion, kindness,
and indestructible perseverance. Allison also ignites rebirth, vitality, and renewal through her unified work as an inspirational speaker and artist.
Ms. Massari found
peace, purpose, and happiness after overcoming two
extraordinary personal tragedies. In 1998, she survived a near
fatal 60 mph car crash where she was trapped and burned
severely. Just three years later she was hit again at 60 mph
and suffered a near fatal brain injury. The level of betrayal
she felt from life seemed insurmountable. Then she became
determined to create an amazing life.
||Taking a long,
steep climb from ashes into recovery, she learned very
clearly how to navigate her way to true healing and to a
life beyond anything she could have dreamed possible.
Her rededicated mission is to share her story of
transformation and revitalization to motivate change in
people and the organizations that nurture and inspire
Allison shares how one

teaches the secrets she discovered to create
against-all-odds successful outcomes and new beginnings.

In 2010, Ms.
Massari was featured in the Polaris Global international
ReSolve teaching solutions for people coming through
challenge and post-traumatic stress. She was nominated for the
2010 Presidential Citizens Award for her work for over a
decade helping children with burn injuries.
Her revolutionary programs with these teens were founded in 1998; and they continue to transform young people's lives at the Adaptive Sports Center in Crested Butte, Colorado. Her work stems from a desire to give back and to be involved in the medical community that nurtured her as a child and gave her a second chance at life. Her father is a surgeon, and her mother a nurse. Her story and extensive time in recovery from her accidents has given her compelling material to enlighten health care workers with a deeper awareness in patient-centered care.
Massari’s professional career is rich with diverse
achievement. For over 15 years she has been placing,
creating, and selling fine art to international
collectors and Fortune 500 clients, such as General
Mills, US Airways, and Lockheed Martin. The Museum of
Fine Arts in St. Petersburg, Florida displays her
collage work in its permanent collection. She holds a
Masters of Arts degree from School of Visual Arts in New
York City and a Bachelor of Arts from the Rhode Island
School of Design, as well as being the recipient of an
adventurous award to study in Brugge, Belgium and La
