Alumni Spotlight: Anne Allen

June 18, 2017
By Brenda Seagraves

Tate's School Alum Anne Allen recently graduated from the University of Michigan as the third Dr. Allen in her immediate family. She will be completing her residency in dermatology at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor and then she plans to complete a 1-year fellowship in dermatopathology. She hopes to eventually move back to Knoxville to practice as a general dermatologist and dermatopathologist. 

Anne not only knows a lot about medicine, but she is an accomplished cook! Before medical school, she studied classic French cooking at the New England Culinary Institute in Vermont and worked as a line chef on a dude ranch in Colorado.

Anne says she has SO MANY great memories of Tate’s: playing hide and seek in the  Christmas trees, dressing as Jackie Kennedy on President’s Day, winning the Halloween contest as a Chinese takeout box, dissecting pigs in science class and dropping eggs off the Big Toy as part of a science experiment.

Anne is pictured with her mother and father: Drs. Debbie and Tony Allen.

Anne, Tate’s School is so proud of you and your accomplishments!

I taught Anne's mother, Debbie, at Welch High School (math) back in the early 70's, and I was not surprised when she went into medicine.  So, I am not the least bit surprised to hear that Anne is also going into medicine.  I am sure she will be just as successful as her mom and dad.  Congratulations Anne!
