Alison Hamrick, MA

Neurodiversity Enhancement Coordinator

Alison is the Neurodiversity Enhancement Coordinator at the Farm, Healing Community Campus.

“I feel very fortunate to be part of the CooperRiis community and am excited about this new element of our mental health recovery program; providing structures, individualized support, and visual representation will serve to help all in their healing journeys.”

After spending the last 12 years abroad, including at the International Community School in Addis Ababa in Ethiopia, Africa as their Coordinator of Student Support, Alison recently returned to North Carolina.

She holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology and a Master’s Degree in Education.

In her free time, Alison enjoys spending time with her family, exploring the mountains of North Carolina on foot and the back of a motorcycle, paddle boarding, and yoga. She is grateful to have landed back in the Blue Ridge Mountains, where the beauty of nature is abundant.
