Home Church: Northwest Langley Baptist Church
Allison was born and raised in Langley, BC. She accepted Christ into her life as a young child, and has grown up attending Northwest Langley Baptist Church.
Since her early teen years, she felt confident of God's call for her into missions. After high school, Allison went to Trinity Western University and graduated in International Studies in 2013. During her summers she had the opportunity to travel and volunteer in several countries, and sensed further confirmation that God was directing her into missions. While in university, she became very involved in the social justice club, which provided an opportunity for her to learn more about and raise awareness related to issues of world injustice. Through these experiences her heart was strongly burdened by the exploitation of humans around the world.
Following graduation, with a keen desire to explore where the Lord might be directing her, Allison served with Fellowship International for several years in Cambodia coming alongside women caught in the sex-trade industry seeking to empower them as they sought to build their lives and work in an environment free from sexual exploitation.
