As the Community Engagement Manager, Alison is passionate about creating the spaces for CC’s community members to come meet, explore, and do important work together. In her time at Creative Commons, Alison spent 4 years running CC’s flagship event, the Global Summit, as well as other internal and external events.

Before joining CC, Alison worked at Girl Guides of Canada, where she’s been a member for over 15 years. She’s led programs at local 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 camping, hiking and gardening. She lives in Toronto with her husband, two kids, and two cats.
