“I enjoy working at Rio because I enjoy helping our youth grow not only spiritually, but socially and academically, to be the best they possibly can be,” says Dean Allen.
Hillary Allen, or Dean A. as we like to call her, joined the dean team in 2021. As a history buff, Dean A. loves seeing changes happening in our world through our youth to help it move forward in this modern and fast changing world. Dean A. helps all aspects of the dorm; room checks, mentoring young women, reminding students where to go, and helping them solve problems. She enjoys giving council and advice and seeing students make positive changes in their lives.
When she’s not in the dorm, Dean A. loves hiking with her family, traveling, and watching Disney movies! She also enjoys eating food and is a self-proclaimed foodie. Dean A. enjoys spending one on one time with people to get to know them and brings her cat, Norman, around especially to the Girls Dean office where students can come visit and love on him.
