"Allison Parks" was a pseudonym she used when modelling for Playboy. She told The Playmate Book that she liked it so much, she kept it as her professional name.[2] She was a mother at the time of her centerfold, and her kids were featured in a photo in her layout, but they were identified as swimming school students.

After her Playmate work, Parks went on to a long career as a model and actress, mostly in TV commercials.


Parks died of heart failure while on vacation in Hawaii, at the age of 68.[3]
