Meet Kristin Brady & Alison Ellsworth

When they first met at a Beautycounter Social, Kristin Brady and Alison Ellsworth didn’t realize that they’d soon be close friends—after all, they don’t even live in the same state. But Alison became Kristin’s mentor, and has been helping her build her business ever since. Alison—who also has a FT job in corporate America, is a mother of two, and a personal trainer—first found Beautycounter because she was looking for options for her kids and her husband, who has a history of invasive melanoma.
