Before joining CC, Alison worked at Girl Guides of Canada, where she's been a member for over 15 years. She was responsible for coordinating camping programs and special events for girls and adults. She's led programs at local, Provincial and National camps, but now stays closer to home as a volunteer leader for her daughter's group.
Alison has been sewing and crafting since she was a kid, is an exhibited textile artist, and made her own wedding dress. She loves being outdoors, rain or shine, especially hiking and gardening. She lives in Toronto with her husband, two little kids, one sweet cat and one bossy cat.
