Allison Konkel grew up in Fort Collins, Colorado. She made her way to Montana in 2001 at the urging of her father, an avid fly fisherman. Throughout college she competed on the Montana State University Rodeo team and attained a degree in accounting. By the time she had completed her degree, she had fallen so in love with Montana she knew she knew she had to make it her home. As luck would have it, soon after college she had the opportunity to join the largest vacation rental company in southwest Montana. It seemed fitting to be a part of the tourism industry since that is one of the things first lured her to this wonderful place.

On a personal level, Allison is married to Ted Babcock, a local golf professional.   They have two amazing young kids. She enjoys everything outdoors-- spending time with her horses, fishing, hiking, gardening and more.
