Alyson will regularly remind you of that old adage, that you should ask a busy person if you want something done (and done well)! She has held senior roles in communications and public affairs for over a decade, both politically on Parliament Hill and in the private sector. She graduated from Mount Allison University, has studied internationally in France and Spain, and in 2014, created her own boutique firm, Lumière Consulting. She has led several volunteer organizations in support of the arts and civic engagement, and has long been an advocate of ensuring that women’s voices are heard. Alyson comes from a long line of strong women and her most important role of all will be raising her new daughter, Audrey, to continue that legacy. Alyson is a proud Atlantic Canadian who lives in Ottawa, Ontario with her husband Serge, daughter Audrey and their highly entertaining dog, Flora.
