Stacy Allison brings a vast range of experiences and knowledge to her energetic and dynamic presentations. Ms. Allison is best known as the "First American woman to summit Mt. Everest." Stacy Allison is also the president of her own residential building company. Ms. Allison serves on the Board of Trustees of National University and is the Chairperson for The Oregon Lung Association's fundraiser, Reach the Summit.
At the age of 21, Stacy Allison began major alpine climbing and achieved rapid success. Within a year, she reached the top of Alaska's Mt. McKinley, the highest point in North America, and was part of the first successful women's ascent of Ama Dablam, the 22,495 foot peak known as Nepal's Matterhorn. These accomplishments provided the groundwork for much greater achievements, including the ascent of the tallest peak in the Russian Pamir Range, as well as her first Everest challenge.

On her first attempt on Mt Everest, Stacy Allison did not summit. Stacy later returned to Mt. Everest with the Northwest American Everest Expedition, and on September 29, 1988, after twenty-nine days on the mountain, Stacy Allison became the first American woman to reach the summit of Mt. Everest, the world's highest mountain at 29,028 feet.
