Publisher / Words

Alison was born and raised here in the Strathcona region and returned home after years away to raise a family and reconnect with the relaxed pace of life that this part of the island inspires. Her career has taken her through a number of marketing and communications roles, many of which connected her to the island tourism industry, and eventually led her to co-founding her own agency, Boleyn Media with her husband Jos.

She is an active member of my community, supporting many local non-profit organizations. The Strathcona Collective has been a true passion project for Alison, giving her an opportunity to share the beauty and stories of her region with the world.
