Allison Ingalls


Sr. Research Associate


Allie joined the Center for Indigenous Health in February of 2012. She works as a Senior Research Associate in Baltimore, MD. Allie is a program manager of behavioral and mental health programs, currently focused on Project SafeSchools. She also coordinates the Center's Research Associate professional development and mentorship program. Allie previously worked on Family Spirit dissemination and research; curriculum development for Edible School Gardens, NativeVision, and Arrowhead Business Group; and research coordination for Preventing Early Childhood Obesity and a pilot study to test a precision approach to home visiting.

Prior to joining the Center, she worked largely in community-engaged research and practice. Her passion for this work came from her experience as a student researcher with a university-community program at an urban garden in the inner city of Rochester, NY. Following this, Allie worked with a large humanitarian organization (CARE USA) as a graduate student researcher focused on global maternal, infant, and young child health and well-being. The opportunity to work at the Center and with Indigenous communities has been an honor and blends all the best parts of these prior experiences. 

Allie has a BS degree in International Business & Marketing from the Rochester Institute of Technology and an MPH degree from Emory University. Outside of work, she enjoys spending time with family, reading, hiking, learning about conservation, and, more recently, long-term road trips and over-landing.
