The mothers, the millennials, and the mavens. Changing our communities.
This is our seventh annual unveiling of 50 amazing women who are raising the bar in their communities, serving as beacons of light in their industries, and forcing change for the greater good. Meet this West Virginia Wonder Woman, Ashley Pack, and many more that are creating a better West Virginia with their can-do attitudes and Mountain State spirit.
Putting Community First
Ashley Pack is the youngest female office managing partner at Dinsmore & Shohl LLP, a national law firm with more than 650 lawyers and five offices in West Virginia. In addition to managing the Charleston office, Pack is one of four women serving on Dinsmore’s Board of Directors and is the state coordinator for the Leadership Council for Legal Diversity, an organization committed to diversity and inclusion in a legal environment. She is also chair of the Thomas Health Foundation and serves on the Children’s Therapy Clinic board.
Pack enjoys working with her clients and believes it is imperative to understand the business operations and priorities of her clients in order to represent them effectively. “One thing I love about my job is learning about different industries, whether it is energy, healthcare, or banking” she explains. Ultimately, she is the voice for many people: her clients, her community, her colleagues, and her state.
“It’s important that we all give back in some way with whatever skill set we have,” Pack says. She welcomes solving difficult problems and enjoys working with people, so she is happy to leverage her skill set for the benefit of others, whether it is her clients, her firm, or her community.
