Psychology Postdoctoral Fellows

Jennifer Allen, PhD

Jennifer Allen, PhD

Originally from Kansas, I received my B.A. from the University of Tulsa in Psychology and Spanish. From there I earned my doctorate at Saint Louis University and completed my internship training at the Center for Behavioral Medicine in Kansas City, MO. I am currently a clinical psychology fellow and am working with Jennifer Ehrentraut, Ph.D. with patients who experience acute and chronic pain. In regard to research, I am interested in the relationship between pain and sleep and how that impacts overall quality of life. In my free time I love reading, playing with my dog, running, and exploring Memphis.

I am thrilled to have the opportunity to complete a clinical fellowship in psychology at St. Jude. After growing up in New Jersey and completing college at Miami University of Ohio, I attended the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL) for graduate school to pursue a specialization in school psychology. At UNL, I obtained my MA in 2011 and my doctorate in August 2015. I recently completed my predoctoral psychology internship at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center (UTHSC) - St. Jude Pediatric Program. I look forward to building upon the training I have received at St. Jude by pursuing research and clinical opportunities with oncology and hematology populations. In fellowship, I will be working with Dr. Jerlym Porter to conduct research on health promotion and transition to adult care for patients with sickle cell disease. In my spare time, I enjoy running, watching sports, exploring Memphis, and traveling home to the East Coast to visit family and friends.
