Ally is passionate about creating communities that support and celebrate people of all genders and orientations; she believes in inclusion and the gift of diversity. She brings a wealth of experience from working as an outdoor adventure guide, social service worker and workshop facilitator. In her spare time, she hangs out with a few vulnerable youth from around the neighbourhood and messes about in her kayak. Soon after she did her first workshop in 2008, she established both the HAI Ontario Facebook page and Meetup groups, increasing the visibility, diversity and overall community participation in Ontario. She officially joined the team as an assistant in 2011. Currently Ally is the social event coordinator, social media manager and coordinator of the Pride Toronto Committee for HAI Ontario.
