Allison (D'Ambrosio) Bones
Allison (D’Ambrosio) Bones is the President and CEO of T.E.A.M. 4 Travis (Together Ending Asplenia Mortality). Having experienced multiple losses in a 6-year period, including her premature infant twins, her father and her husband, she could have crumbled when Travis died too. Instead, she decided to attack the disease that claimed Travis. She focused on creating a foundation that would help prevent other families from losing a child to a disease few people even knew existed.
Allison earned a Bachelor’s of Business Administration from Baylor University. During a 13-year career at GE Capital, Allison held various roles, including Account Manager for a portfolio of Recreational Vehicle dealerships, each with a commercial credit line in excess of $10 million.
Educational and professional experience combined with volunteer duties at Special Olympics, Salvation Army and the Boys’ and Girls’ Clubs inspired Allison to take on the challenge of founding a nonprofit. At T.E.A.M. 4 Travis, she focuses on raising ICA awareness and being a champion for Rare Disease Advocacy.
Past achievements include speaking at numerous Rare Disease events, serving as an inaugural member of Rare Disease Legislative Advocates' Advisory Committee and earning T.E.A.M. 4 Travis Congressional recognition from US Representative Debbie Lesko for advocacy and awareness efforts. Allison also led efforts to have August 25 declared as the T.E.A.M. 4 Travis Asplenia Awareness Day in 2021 and 2022, through a proclamation from Arizona Governor Doug Ducey.
When not busy with T.E.A.M. 4 Travis, Allison enjoys travel, watching college football (especially her beloved Baylor Bears and Travis’ Texas Longhorns) and spending time with friends.
