Allyson L. Wilson studied Legal Communication at George Mason University as well as Strategic Communication in George Mason's Masters of Arts program. In addition, she is a Lecturer teaching public speaking at George Mason.
Ms. Wilson has been with us since 2016 after having spent four years at North Carolina State University in administrative roles within the Division of Academic and Student Affairs. There she provided training to students and staff regarding University policies and guidelines, performed administrative coordination and supervision between seven units within the division, and evaluated financial data to forecast and manage a large state fund budget.
Business functions aside, Ms. Wilson’s favorite aspect of working at NC State University was working alongside the University’s brightest and most outgoing students within Student Government, the Union Activities Board and over 600 Student Organizations, including serving as an advisor to “Acappology,” one of NC State’s finest acapella singing organizations.
In July 2013, Ms. Wilson received the “Pride of the Wolfpack Award” and in April 2016 she was nominated for NC State University’s Award for Excellence in the area of human relations recognizing her contributions toward enhancing the quality and morale of the workplace.
Ms. Wilson strives to build quality relationships by being present, and available, to loved ones, friends, and colleagues. It was this characteristic that brought about these professional recognitions. Her training and extensive knowledge of University policy allowed her to be at the heart of support for colleagues who needed to step away from the office for various personal reasons ranging from sick family members all the way up to cancer diagnoses. In addition, she provided immeasurable support to ensure those colleagues’ absences didn’t have a negative impact on the University’s staff and students. Ms. Wilson also worked with students in distress and she was commended for her work, after the students reported that her calm approach served to comfort them when they needed it most.
Ms. Wilson is no stranger to small business management. She has over 22 years of business management and entrepreneurial experience. Prior to her time with NC State, she spent over six years as a partner in a full-service motorcycle shop which provided routine maintenance, performance enhancements, and aftermarket parts and accessories for Harley-Davidson Motorcycles. During this time she managed tasks and duties which were very similar to the work she would subsequently handle at NC State: project management, business and fiscal management, personnel management, and inventory control. Ms. Wilson recalls that the success of a business lies in the relationships built with treasured clients and the community.
Ms. Wilson has a passion for learning and has a host of education and training in communication and business management under her belt. At The Wilson Law Firm, she uses this education and experience to help ensure that the firm is providing top notch service to its valued clients by providing administrative support, and managing business, fiscal, marketing, and personnel functions. Ms. Wilson is also trained on SFSTs. She has completed NHTSA's 24-hour course DWI Detection & Standardized Field Sobriety Testing, the same course law enforcement officers take to learn to conduct field sobriety testing.
