My name is Alison Fisher, and I’m married to Doug, one of our wilderness therapy field instructors. I have been volunteering with Rites of Passage for a couple of years now and I am also on the board of directors of the Bonnie Alaska Welch Childrens' Foundation.
I graduated from Queen’s University Belfast, Northern Ireland, in 2001 with a Master’s Degree in Pharmacy and currently work in the community pharmacy setting. One of my favorite areas of work is diabetes education as I am very passionate about promoting nutritional health and exercise by setting attainable and realistic goals for people to achieve a healthier lifestyle. I also worked for 4 years as a family support worker where I ran marriage enrichment courses and bereavement support groups for children coming to terms with death or divorce.
I am such a massive advocate for ROP, and its founders Nate and Emma Welch and love to help out wherever I can, be it administrative tasks or crocheting colorful hats for our ROP kids.
