In her summers Allie worked full time as a supervisor in a golf course Club House that specialized in executive private functions. Between her time in undergrad and her Masters program, Allie worked as a research associate for Environment and Climate Change Canada where she helped evaluate the impact of status assessments provided by the Species At Risk Act.
