IMU Welcomes Allison Sandblom as Student Advisor!
IMU is excited to announce that addition of Allison Sandblom to our team as our very first Student Advisor! Allison will be working directly with both potential students and enrolled students to help them get started toward and continue toward a degree at IMU.
“I am really excited about this position” says Allison. “I have actually been a student with IMU myself and have grown to really love and appreciate this school. There’s really nothing like it anywhere and the potential for helping people and for changing the world in a positive way is enormous. I’m honored to be a part of it.”
Allison is a self-confessed “type A” personality and perfectionist, who spent over 20 years in the corporate world in a successful career in sales and management. Allison thrived on the fast-paced environment and appreciated the luxuries that her six-figure income afforded her. She was working her way up the corporate ladder and, despite some inner twinges that might have indicated that she was dissatisfied with her life had she stopped to listen, was set upon becoming the next Director of Sales. As soon as she achieved her goal, however, Allison’s life changed dramatically. The financial market collapsed, her employer went out of business and she lost most of the material possessions that she treasured. Soon after, she woke up one morning and found that her body could barely function. After years of driving herself to exhaustion and beyond, functioning mainly on caffeine and sugar, the effects had taken its toll on Allison’s physical body. She could barely get out of bed or walk and everything hurt. At 38 years old she was diagnosed with chronic sinus infections, severe allergies and asthma, thyroid issues, hormonal issues, Chronic Fatigue, and Fibromyalgia.
From there Allison began a long journey toward health and wholeness and began taking classes in metaphysical, spiritual and holistic health studies. She now holds a number of certifications and is a Certified Hypnotherapist, Reiki Master Teacher and Certified Spiritual Counselor. She is a Holistic and Spiritual Practitioner and Teacher in Arizona and is passionate about helping people overcome negative patterns and beliefs that have resulted in addictions, depression, weight and body issues and feelings of anxiety, separation and disconnection. She uses a holistic approach (mind-body-spirit connection) to help facilitate healing and restore balance, peace and well-being with her clients.
Allison is also a student at International Metaphysical University where she is pursuing her Master’s Degree in Holistic Health. She loves the quality of the classes and instructors and the up-to-date material that is relevant to what she uses with her clients on a day-to-day basis. Allison believes strongly in continuing to grow, evolve and expand our awareness of ourselves and the world around us. As Socrates said “True wisdom comes to each of us when we realize how little we understand about life, ourselves, and the world around us.” Allison feels we are all lifelong students and IMU is a wonderful place to expand that awareness of ourselves and our world.
