Project Description

Operation Wild Program Coordinator

Allison has a diploma in Developmental Services and spent 6 years as a support worker. After cultivating community gardens with A Rocha during a summer internship, Allison saw how a little fresh air and dirt had the power to comfort, rejuvenate, and bring people together. With mental health challenges on the rise, she hopes Operation Wild will give people living with disabilities access to the therapeutic benefits of nature and inspire community conservation efforts in our local cities. Allison and her husband Ben live in the East End of Hamilton. They love the library, biking, playing with their nephews and nieces and hosting friends.
