Claire Allen
Interim Hospital Manager

Claire is a Kalamazoo native who gravitated towards East Lansing to earn her Bachelors in Communication from Michigan State University. She is extremely passionate about animals, helping train and develop others, and making a difference in this world in any way she can. Her favorite thing to do is spending time with her furry funky bunch – 4 dogs and 2 cats that she rescued. While it can get hectic, she wouldn’t have it any other way. In her free time, she enjoys practicing yoga, adventuring outdoors with the pups, exploring the city, as well as anything with her friends and family (with or without fur)!
