Entrepreneur | Executive | Writer | Mentor
Event: Unapologetically Authentic
Alison Ruks brings over 15 years of experience as an entrepreneur and executive leader in consumer packaged goods, natural health, cannabis, and education. Her brands and opinion pieces have been featured in Forbes, Medium, Authority Magazine, MSN, Motherly, and SheKnows, and she has demonstrated success with multiple brands that resulted in sales and fundraising results in the multi-millions.
She currently oversees a company she founded in the sustainable baby accessories category, provides mentoring and growth consulting services for entrepreneurs, and has worked with Accelerate Okanagan as an Executive in Residence business mentor and teacher.
Alison’s passion for health led her to begin her career studying natural medicine. She then acquired a business degree - graduating with honours - from the University of British Columbia and shortly afterward became certified as a Chartered Human Resources Professional with a goal of building a portfolio of businesses that foster positive, healthy, and productive workplaces.
In addition to her impressive achievements in business, Alison has also overcome significant challenges in her personal life. As a woman who built her career in male-dominated industries, she has faced multiple barriers in forging her path, and breaking through the glass ceiling.
In 2011, she was diagnosed with MS (Multiple Sclerosis), an incurable autoimmune disease, where doctors predicted she would be in a wheelchair by 2016. She developed her own four-pronged approach to healing, through mental, physical, spiritual, and emotional wellness utilizing numerous therapies from nutrition to psychedelics, and her success has baffled many in her medical community. Her resilience and determination in the face of adversity have inspired many people, especially those who are facing similar challenges.
As a leader and mentor, Alison is passionate about empowering women to pursue their dreams and succeed in their chosen fields. She is a true inspiration, not only for her achievements in business but also for her resilience, determination, and commitment to be her best self and make a positive impact in the world.
