Alison came to work in Canary Wharf as a trainee solicitor in 2006. She became part of the midweek and Sunday congregations, before moving to work in central London. In 2016, she returned to the heights of the Wharf now working for a specialist workplace law firm and has recently reduced her hours to working 4 days a week in order to have 1 day a week to work with the midweek congregation.
Alison is a Glaswegian born and bred but feels that 12 years in town give her dual citizenship as an honorary Londoner. When not engaged in the cut throat world of law and/or church, she greatly enjoys watching and playing any sport with a racquet or hanging out with her friends and godsons (usually playing train tracks, a sport she came to late in life).
