Allie has more than 8 years of experience in engineering and life sciences.

During her time as a commercial strategy consultant, she gained therapeutic area acumen in rare diseases across gastroenterology, oncology, neurology, and immunology. She has considerable experience executing primary market research and is energized by facilitating insightful discussions with experts and patients ‘on the ground.’ Having the opportunity to create lasting change for patients with high unmet need ‘gets her out of bed in the morning.
