Chicago designer and home renovation expert Alison Victoria could lose it all in the newest season of HGTV's Windy City Rehab - and it's not just because of bigger, riskier projects as Alison continues her work to transform historic fixer-uppers, she must manage a strained business relationship, contend with permit delays and battle stop work orders.

"Running a design and renovation business in Chicago is not for the faint of heart," said Alison. "It has tested me in more ways than I could have ever imagined."
