Sarah Sparks has worked in the IT sector for more than 10 years, and focused on digital transformation and helping businesses transition to the cloud.
She has worked with large technology companies to create go-to market strategies specifically for within Canada. Becoming a foster parent had always been a goal. While researching and starting the process, she was made painfully aware of the over representation of Black and Indigenous children and youth in care, two groups she herself belongs to. She encountered a disconnect between applicant expectations and agency engagement due to timelines and the overwhelming caseloads child welfare professionals were given. She felt this was an issue innovation could improve and Alo Solutions was born.

Devin now lends his experience and expertise to the Alo Solutions leadership team as Director of Operations and acting Technical Director.
