M.B.A. University of Virginia (2020)
Darden School of Business


In addition to being a Jefferson Fellow, Allie is a member of the Raven Society and was the Samuel Forrest Hyde Memorial Fellowship awardee for her class. While at Darden, she was also actively involved in the Student Admissions Committee and was president of the Consulting Club. Prior to Darden she spent several years on General Motors’ international public policy and self-driving vehicle teams. While she is sad to leave Shenandoah and its amazing hiking trails, she’s excited to move to Washington, DC, to work for McKinsey & Company. In her free time, she volunteers with Girls on the Run and Off Their Plate, two organizations that share her passions for running, cooking, and nurturing female and BIPOC leaders.
