Ally holds a Master of Aquatic Biology/Limnology from the University of Amsterdam as well as an undergraduate degree in Environmental Biology from the University of Toronto and the National University of Singapore. Ally founded Sea Going Green in 2017, as a sustainable tourism consultancy with the mission of alleviating the negative impacts that the tourism industry is having on the marine environment.
