Hometown: Flushing, NY

Career Ambitions: Actuarial Science as well as Enterprise Risk Management

Something You May Not Know: I’ve learned to become a pretty decent cook during the long quarantine period – and not just eggs. My mom even relies on me to cook some family dinners now, which means I may… or may not enjoy my new skill set.

Biggest Internship Takeaway So Far:

“I have really learned how complex, dynamic, and interesting the insurance world can be. From a marketing perspective, there’s so much that goes into making Donegal stand out amongst its competitors- most important to this is highlighting how dedicated and committed every employee is to ensuring customers receive the best service possible.

Allyn Stallone

Surety Bonds Underwriting Intern | Temple University, Class of 2022

 

Hometown: Phoenixville, PA/Allentown, NJ

Career Ambitions: I am most interested in a career on the property & casualty side of the insurance industry. I think I would enjoy working in underwriting or claims.

On the weekends, you can find me: Spending time with friends and family- and, alternating between a multitude of hobbies, including multimedia art, music, jewelry making, reading, video games, and more.

Biggest Internship Takeaway So Far:

“Insurance just continues to impress me with how interesting and diverse it is, and my internship at Donegal has only solidified this. My experience has encouraged me to continue exploring my multitude of interests in insurance.”

Brecken Musser

Operations Intern | Penn State, Class of 2022

 

Hometown: Elizabethtown, PA

Career Ambitions: In addition to pursuing careers where I can use my marketing and management degrees, I am also interested in working for organizations that pursue humanitarian or nonprofit work.

On the weekends, you can find me: Playing golf and spending time with my friends. Every weekend, some of my hometown friends and I get together for a game night. Sundays, I enjoy going to church and being connected in the church community.

Biggest Internship Takeaway So Far:

“The interconnectivity and teamwork required and used at Donegal is astounding. Learning about collaboration between departments in the classroom does not do justice to how much is actually needed at Donegal, or any company for that matter. Donegal does a great job with its employees working together within their departments and then collaborating across departments.”
