Alison Simard

Director of Marketing and Communications

Alison joined Heal the Bay in December 2022 after serving as Director of Communications and Wildlife Policy and Legislation Aide for Los Angeles Councilmember Paul Koretz. Alison’s marketing and communications career spans more than thirty years representing a variety of thought leaders, universities, non-profits, entrepreneurs, small businesses, and large corporations.

In 2012, Alison conceived and co-founded Citizens for Los Angeles Wildlife (CLAW), an environmental non-profit organization committed to the protection of wildlife and open space in LA. She maintains her directorship on CLAW’s board in addition to several other associations and political clubs fighting for animal protection, wilderness conservation, and climate action at all levels.

In between skiing, camping and exploring the natural playgrounds of the Rocky Mountains, Alison earned a BA in Creative Writing and English Literature from the University of Montana in Missoula. For more than twenty years she has lived in the canyons of Los Angeles, playing with her family in the Santa Monica mountains and exploring California coastlines.
