KIMBERLY ALLEN – Region 1
Through a diversity of interests and opportunity, Kim has been fortunate enough to have worked in multiple sectors. She has been employed in various aspects of the agriculture and horticulture industries for well over 30 years, from on-farm labour to research to entrepreneur. This will be Kim’s 4th year as an LSCI with CropInspect. Her passion is ethnobotany. The intricate web of relationships between people and the plants that sustain them has always intrigued her and she has focused her passion and research in seeking out, revitalizing, and reconnecting these relationships.
She has also worked in academia as a research assistant and instructor in the Environmental Management faculty at UNB, and for the Province of New Brunswick as a Project Manager for Environmental Impact Assessments. She is currently the Director of Engagement and Consultation for the New Brunswick Aboriginal Affairs Secretariat.
