Welcome, Angelina Callis!

Angelina joined the IWRI family over during summer 2019 as Research Coordinator for the MyPEEPS study and the Luna training program. Angelina’s Tribal affiliation is with the Cayuga Nation of New York State. She holds a bachelor’s degree in business management and completed her Master’s in Social Work in June 2019.  Prior to entering graduate school, she spent over ten years working with U.S. Tribal health & human service agencies on process improvement, practice model documentation, integration of technology into service delivery for organizational improvement, and training both practice and data systems.  Her work also included building capacity within Tribal communities to develop and implement case management systems, creating culturally responsive foster parent training for State systems, and conducting Federal policy review for national research consortiums.  In her new capacity as a research coordinator at IWRI, she continues her work with Indigenous populations in an effort to support health and wellness in communities through research collaboration and capacity building. For fun, Angelina enjoys traveling with her friends and family, reading, and finding new recipes to try with the people she loves.
