Patricia Allen

With more than 7 years experience working in highly selective college admissions, Patricia is a self described “admission nerd” who is passionate about recruiting students, evaluating applications and promoting mission-driven programs that foster leadership and growth. She is adept at identifying young leaders in a crowd, even if they don’t present as the loudest voice in the room, and is enthusiastic about expanding and strengthening the Global Citizen Year community. Patricia holds a B.A in Psychology and Studio Art from Smith College. Originally from Austin, Texas, she now lives with her partner in western Massachusetts and can frequently be found reading, drinking tea, and working in her garden.
