Davida Allen has more than a decade of experience in the human services field. She joined ASCI in 2006 as a caseworker and was soon promoted to Child and Family Services supervisor. Allen credits her success in these roles to the enthusiasm she brings to her work, as well as the opportunity to work with high-energy team members.

In 2017, the agency recognized Allen and her department with the Department of the Year Award and Transformational Leaders Award, after she had been named Supervisor of the Year in 2016. 

Allen earned her bachelor’s degree in business from Duquesne University, where she graduated cum laude.

“Remaining focused, strongly advocating and being dedicated to the mantra of all children being safe and thriving,” is what Allen says keeps her committed to working with children and families.
