A 23-year old Ally took the leap that many in her profession are unwilling to do - opening her own business.  ‘Driftwood’ quickly became the go to place for excellence locally.  At 27, Ally went into partnership at ‘Oak and Anchor’, receiving acclaim from media outlets around the country, and firmly planting Port Fairy as a destination for food and culture.  Ally serves as a perfect role model for young women with her ability to promote harmonious and resilient culture, showing aptitude beyond her years.  Her leadership is renowned and exemplified in the success Ally and her endeavours have received.
