Division 11

Lindsey Allen

Division Manager

Lindsey has lived in just about every region of the Commonwealth. She holds a Bachelor's in Healthcare Administration from Mary Baldwin University and has served as an Assistant Director of Admissions, as well as a Social Services Coordinator for a large healthcare organization. While her professional endeavors have offered many distinctive, edifying experiences, Lindsey’s most important role has been as a mother. With one child having been diagnosed with Autism at a very young age, Lindsey was eager to learn the ins-and-outs of Early Intervention, specialized services, and other developmentally supportive benefits that aided in raising a specially-abled child. With a belief that accessible, sustainable support can encourage and empower, coupled with a passion for social equity, Lindsey desires to “be good and do good” in every facet of her personal and professional life.
