I think many of us had childhood dreams of being a vet someday. Alison made that dream happen. She works at Pearl Animal Hospital in Portland. Believe it or not, she performed 44 cat surgeries the morning before we met up. Pretty impressive. Alison has been a Carhartt lover for a long time. Check out the chore coat her dad gave her almost 11 years ago pictured above. Years and years of horse-loving later and that Carhartt is no worse for wear.
