Elected to the Superior Court of Pennsylvania thereafter, Allen is confident that her “diverse experiences equip me well to bring a combination of wisdom, integrity, and informed judgment to our state’s highest court.”
She also referenced her time as a Juvenile Court judge and the impact it had on her.
