Suzanne Allen, Clerk  Term expires May, 2022

Suzanne Allen moved to Harvard in 2013 with her husband and their two children who currently attend Harvard Public Schools.  We were drawn to this town by the strength of the public schools, the welcoming community and the beauty of the rural setting. Suzanne is a Yale educated Pediatric Nurse Practitioner who currently practices in the division of adolescent medicine at Umass Children's Medical Center in Worcester, MA. She received her undergraduate degree in Human Services from Northeastern University and then held a full time position as a program coordinator at Andover Youth Services providing social, support, recreation and educational experiences for Andover's youth ages 11-18. It was in this role that she became a stalwart advocate for young people which she will continue to do as a member of the Harvard School Committee. She is serving on the Harvard School Committee to continue the work of balancing academic excellence with personal well being as is stated in our mission statement.
