What the nominator said:

“As a small nonprofit, Girls Inc. does not have a human resource director or department, but instead relies on the expertise and guidance of our board members. Allyson voluntarily wrote our employee handbook and employee policies and has provided needed advice on many employment matters. She walks the talk and exceeds her obligations and responsibilities.”

Social media platform you can’t live without:

Facebook and Instagram

Biggest break:

“I was selected for a clerkship with former Chief Justice of the Delaware Supreme Court Myron T. Steele the year after I graduated from law school. It was a wonderful and unique experience, and I learned so much about the Delaware Court system and the practice of law the ‘Delaware way.”

Two words that best describe you:

Problem-solver.

Work/life balance technique you recommend:

“Work with people who have similar values, and do your best to multitask and be flexible in all areas of life.”

Your advice for the next generation:

“I encourage the next generation to explore different job opportunities when deciding a career path. These experiences can help an individual better understand the expectations involved in these professions and help determine genuine interests. I would also remind the next generation to be smart and responsible when using social media.”

In one sentence, define success:

“Success is being happy with your accomplishments and motivated to work harder to achieve your goals.”
