Name: Allison Vardy
City: Hamilton, Ontario
Joined Soroptimist: June 2020
Reason for joining: I was invited to join by Brooke, who has been my best friend of 30 years. I was looking for a way to have a positive impact and contribution to my community. I feel it is very important to support women and girls further their education so that they feel empowered to go after the things they want in their lives.
Fun Fact: I lived in Nunavut for 2 years in a remote Inuit community where I volunteered at the school serving breakfast and sitting in the grade 4 class helping kids with their reading. I’m a proud dog-mom whose dog Neko attends every Soroptimist meeting with me via Zoom.
