There are those people who do amazing things in their careers. And, then there are those people who take things one step further.

Without a doubt, Ally Cedeno fits into that latter category. Not only has she built a successful career and traveled all across the globe, but she also launched — a website dedicated to helping other women make names for themselves in energy.
