  • Right Choices was founded in 2012 by Allison Smith. Allison Smith is a retired United States Army Command Sergeant Major. She retired after 27 years of active duty service to our nation. Right Choices is devoted to leading, inspiring, and motivating women to choose to make good decisions in life.

    Motivating women to understand their worth is very personal to Allison, you see, although she had a very successful military career; Allison suffered from low self-esteem from childhood into adulthood and even throughout her military career. In 2011, Allison retired from the military and committed to fulfilling the call on her life. Right Choices is that call. Right Choices believes that bad choices lead to bad decisions which lead to negative consequences. Right Choices serves as a tool to motivate, inspire, and guide women to understand who they really are; to help them realize that they are fearfully and wonderfully made; to understand that all things are possible with God and that with Him, they can do all things which will strengthen them.
