    Sue Ellen Allen on Expert Insights Radio!

    3pm ET / 2pm CT / 1pm MT / 12pm PT

    Viki Winterton interviews Sue Ellen Allen!


    Sue Ellen is a former University of Texas grad, former educator, former business owner, former community leader, and former inmate at Arizona State prison.


    She is a current author and activist promoting education behind bars. She serves as Executive Director for Gina’s Team, an organization that brings educational programs and speakers into prison to inspire and empower the inmate population to strive for a better future and a successful reentry. Gina’s Team is named for her prison roommate who died there of medical neglect. Gina’s death was a defining moment of Sue Ellen’s journey, giving her life a new purpose and passion.


    In prison, under harsh conditions, she survived advanced breast cancer and learned to turn pain into power. She also learned that not all prisons are behind bars, and that every journey has a purpose. Overcoming incredible odds, she found her purpose and now works with prison officials, legislatures, and interns from Arizona State University to serve the forgotten population behind bars, so that upon their reentry to society they will join our community as positive, contributing members.


    The award-winning author of The Slumber Party From Hell, a memoir about her prison journey, her writing has also been included in Serving Productive Time by Tom and Laura Lagana, authors of Chicken Soup For the Prisoner’s Soul. Additionally, many of her poems were published in Cosmopolitan magazine under the leadership of Helen Gurley Brown.

    in Christianity

    "We have been instructed by the Lord that the medical missionary work is to be to the work of the THIRD ANGEL'S MESSAGE AS THE RIGHT HAND TO THE BODY. The right hand is used to open doors through which the body may find entrance. This is the part the medical missionary work is to act. IT IS TO LARGELY PREPARE THE WAY FOR THE RECEPTION OF THE TRUTH FOR THIS TIME. A body without hands is useless. In giving honor to the body, honor must also be given to the helping hands, which are agencies of such importance that without them the body can do nothing. Therefore the body which treats indifferently the right hand, refusing its aid, is able to accomplish nothing." Chapter 43—How to Open Closed Doors By Ellen G. White
