Ally is passionate about kindling the creative flame that lives within each of us. She’s
an artist, poet and Intentional Creativity® teacher who is trained in Spiritual Formation (Columbia Theological). Ally is the creator of Soul Kindling (LLC), a sanctuary designed to awaken participants to their inner well of wisdom. She invites participants to a table of spiritual practice where they explore their sacred story, re-member their creativity and ignite fresh vision for their lives. An advocate for Red Thread circles, Ally leads regular gatherings that uplift belonging and individual voice as imperative elements of the whole. Her art is currently on exhibit at Harrington Center (Columbia Theological, Decatur, GA) and has also been part of the Moore County Fine Arts Festival (NC/August 2019) as well as Litmus Gallery (Raleigh, NC/October 2018). Ally lives with her husband, Chris, two sons and yellow lab among the pine trees of North Carolina where a stop for ice cream is always possible.
