Marketing director returning to roots

Anne Allen, marketing and sales director at Farmington Presbyterian Manor

Born and raised in Festus, Mo., Anne Allen is returning to her roots as Marketing and Sales Director at the Farmington Presbyterian Manor, bringing a decade of education and marketing experience with her.

Anne earned a Bachelor of Science in Print and Broadcast Journalism at Hannibal-LaGrange University, a private Christian school in Hannibal, Mo. Upon graduation, she worked at Believer’s Broadcasting as an on-air personality and in the Hannibal-LaGrange University registrar’s office as office manager.

In 2012, Anne returned to school and earned her Master of Arts in strategic communication at the University of Missouri. While a student, she worked at the MU News Bureau, the university’s press relations office, and as a graduate assistant for the university’s central marketing and communications team.

After graduation, Anne stayed in Columbia working as a marketing specialist for Mizzou Advancement, the university’s fundraising division. During her time in that role, Anne participated in launching Mizzou: Our Time to Lead, a $1.4 billion dollar giving campaign, and was project manager for the university’s first-ever Day of Giving, which raised $8.4 million in its inaugural year.

When out of the office, Anne enjoys snuggling with her dog Finnegan, taking long walks, quilting, and watching Parks and Rec.
