Hillary hails from California, where she attended Pacific Union College and obtained her Associate’s degree in Music and her Bachelor's degree in History. After taking a year to work at an academy, she attended California State University, Stanislaus, where she earned her Master of Arts in History in 2020. She moved to Ohio in 2022 (along with her cat, Norman!) and enjoys working with students of all ages in helping guide them through the admissions process. Allen also loves to build personal connections with students and is always willing to be a listening ear or a snack provider when necessary. When she is not at work, she enjoys hiking, watching movies, and trying out local restaurants and attractions. Hillary is our DSO for international students.
