Policy Coordinator | [email protected]
Prior to joining the National Health Council (NHC), Allen Pinn spent nearly a decade working in education for nonprofit organizations and as a classroom teacher.
Pinn earned his Bachelor of Arts in History from the University of Virginia in 2013 and a Master of Public Policy from George Mason University in 2022.
During his time as a Teach For America corps member in South Carolina, Pinn’s interest in public policy was first ignited. He enjoyed working with students in a classroom setting. However, he also wanted to better understand the systems and policies in place that were impacting his students’ everyday lives.
In 2016, after completing his Teach For America tenure, Pinn moved to the Washington, D.C. area where he continued working in education and gained a deeper interest in public health.
After navigating the medical system due to a chronic condition, Pinn decided to pursue a Master of Public Policy to help others empower themselves when facing a chronic condition and dealing with the health care system.
Pinn is proud to begin his career in public policy at the NHC where he is a Policy Coordinator. As an advocate for individuals living with chronic conditions, Pinn is excited to continue his career working for an organization dedicated to improving the lives of individuals and care givers dealing with chronic illnesses.
