Alison is a curious spirit who loves to travel to unfamiliar places and meet new people. She believes that everyone has a story and appreciates hearing people speak their truths as she continues on her own journey to discover her voice. As an educator, she aims to help students identify their own strengths and develop a strong sense of self while also working to become active citizens engaged in their communities and working towards social justice. She has a deep love for the Great Lakes in her home state of Michigan, but she often longs for the vast, unique beauty of the Sonoran Desert.
I am choosing to spend my kindness very carefully towards certain people who have taken too much, doesn’t mean I will lose my instinct to want to be kind, and give people the benefit of the doubt until they prove me otherwise.
