Changemakers Meetup with Kirsten Johanna Allen

Kirsten Johanna Allen is publisher at Torrey House Press where she manages editing, production, marketing, and fundraising for the mountain west’s only nonprofit literary publisher. Along with creative director Kathleen Metcalf, Kirsten also oversees acquisitions for the press whose mission is to promote conservation through literature. Inspired by the power of writers like John Muir, Rachel Carson, Wallace Stegner, Terry Tempest Williams, Kirsten and Mark Bailey co-founded Torrey House Press in 2010 to bring to the page new works that compel action to protect wild wonders. Kirsten’s long-time, deep commitment to conservation and care of America’s priceless public lands originated in childhood summers spent in eastern Nevada’s Great Basin country and countless hours in Utah’s canyon lands with her own children. In addition to her work at Torrey House Press, Kirsten’s education and professional background includes a master’s in public health from the University of Utah School of Medicine and a bachelor’s in English from Westminster College; 25 years of private piano instruction, 25 years of freelance editing experience, and five years teaching college English composition; board membership with nonprofits including Wild Utah Project, the Entrada Institute, The Mesa (a writers/artists retreat in Springdale); and conservation work at The Grand Canyon Trust and public health data analysis at the Utah Department of Health. Though Kirsten is a native New Yorker, she’s also a sixth-generation Utahn and feels most at home hiking in Utah’s red rock country. She has two grown children and lives with a pair of cats and her spouse, Mark, in Salt Lake City and Torrey, Utah.
