B.COMM, PASTRY CHEF & CO-OWNER - After saying goodbye to her corporate desk job back in 2004, Alison made the bold step toward turning her passion for pastry into a full-time career. Alison graduated at the top of her class as valedictorian in the Baking & Pastry Arts Diploma program at SAIT and continued her studies abroad in Italy, Belgium & Austria, where she continued her learning in the importance of technique and using only the freshest & finest quality ingredients. Building on this foundation led to experiences opening; Redwater Grille with Chef Ned Bell, Notable, The Restaurant with Chef Michael Noble, and the Sirocco Golf Club with her mentor Chef Guy Leggatt, where she fine tuned her craft over the next 7 years as the club's head pastry chef.

Since the birth of Whippt in 2009, Alison's passion for continued growth and development have led her to classes with The Caketress in Toronto and a working stint with renowned pâtissier Thomas Haas in Vancouver. Alison is also on the Board of Directors for the Alberta Pastry Chef Guild where she enjoys sharing her knowledge and experience with other pastry professionals.
