With three nonprfits, two for profits, a 75 acre farm and a professional skiing career, Alison Gannett has a lot on her plate. Although, as a warrior for climate change, there is not much Alison sees as impossible.
Determined to walk the talk, she strives for 100% self sufficiency at her farm in Paonia, Colorado. Alison has created real change speaking as a climate change consultant to businesses and audiences large and small. She recognizes the deep connection between the environment and her outdoor passion with the Save our Snow organization and inspires other women to fall in love with the outdoors by teaching them how to ski, mountain bike and surf with her Rippin’ Chix camps.
But, there are some things Alison just can’t control. No matter the effort, despite her hard work, there will still be challenges even she cannot overcome. This MoveShake story brings us into Alison’s life as an eternal optimist as she faces the destruction of the everything she has built, and what that vulnerability has taught her.
