Ailsa graduated twice from UBC: once with an undergrad in French and English lit, and then as a teacher. She taught briefly in the Vancouver School District, went to a summer party with a lot of disgruntled teachers, met Chris Staples, and the rest is history.
Ailsa has the illustrious privilege of being employee 001 at Rethink and has worn almost every hat at the agency. She is currently an account director on Coast Capital Savings.
In her spare time, Ailsa loves hanging out with her daughter (Fiona), doing downward dog and planning the next dinner party— usually at the same time. She is a co-founder of the Rethink Knitting Club.
