She will be responsible for executive leadership; increased community outreach, communication and marketing; strategic and operational planning and execution; fund and program development; financial management and oversight; Habitat and ReStore operations; and personnel and volunteer leadership.
Allen has an undergraduate degree from UW-Oshkosh in human services and a master’s in counseling from Lakeland College. She has strong family ties to Door County and Green Bay. She previously served as executive director for Pathway to Living, Unity Hospice and Volunteer Guardian.
“Door County, my neighborhood and my home here bring me great joy,” Allen said. “The value of ‘home’ is one of the reasons I’m excited about this new challenge with DC Habitat.”
