Brigitte M. Gort-Allen Garden


Brigitte M. Allen spent over fourteen years working at NBR. As Senior Vice President for Institutional Development, she was instrumental to NBR’s growth and success. She remained an integral part of the institution until her death of lung cancer on Tuesday, April 7, 2009. She was 49 years old.

While Brigitte loved flowers, her preference was that all memorial gifts be sent to NBR where flowers will forever bloom in a garden on the rooftop of NBR’s new home, rightly named the Brigitte M. Gort-Allen Garden. The photos above were taken on April 7, 2014, during a staff gathering to remember Brigitte.
