Sharon Allen is the Executive Director for World Telehealth Initiative. She commits her passion and enthusiasm to advance the vision of bringing medical expertise to underserved communities throughout the world. Her development of an innovative philanthropic global telehealth model is currently benefitting several clinics and hospitals in resource-poor settings. Sharon managed a successful distribution corporation for 25 years, first as Human Resources and Accounting Manager then as CEO, but feels the transition to the nonprofit sector has revealed her true calling. She states, “I can’t imagine a more fulfilling career than one that improves global healthcare!”
Prior experiences include various philanthropic board engagements and extensive international travel. She earned her Teaching Credential as well as a BS in Nutrition with an English minor from California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo.
Although leisure time is limited with a husband and four children, Sharon enjoys adding to her list of 39 countries explored, and on the weekends biking or hiking in the local mountains or along the coast.
