Why Foster Skills?
Allyson has always had a passion for adoption law, being an adoptee herself. Allyson coached youth soccer while growing up and has always been involved in helping others. She was a volunteer youth mentor for Adoption and Foster Care (AFC) Mentoring. While at Northeastern, she has had two articles published, "The Law of Adoption: A Time for Change" as well as "Reforming the Insanity Defense: A Need for a Psychological Defect Plea". She has shown a profound interest in making a change in the laws of adoption and foster care. Through her experiences as an adoptee and as a mentor at AFC Mentoring, Allyson is hopeful that she can make a real difference in the lives of the children we encounter.
