Tell us your story!

“My name is Meg Adams Ingram. I was born and raised in Decatur, Alabama, graduating from Decatur High School in 2008. I left Decatur to attend college at the University of Alabama (Roll Tide!) and medical school and residency at UAB in Birmingham with a brief teaching stint in Florida in between. After 14 years of being “gone”, my husband and I moved back to Decatur with our family in the summer of 2022. I am a pediatrician with Decatur Morgan Pediatrics.”

Why did you want to move back to Decatur?

“My husband and I both grew up in Decatur and always thought we might move back one day. After becoming a pediatrician and having the opportunity to come back and take care of kids in the community I love so much, it was a no-brainer. Plus, living close to our family and all of the people who have known us for a long time makes it very special!”

What makes Decatur a great place to live and work?

“Decatur is the perfect size city—just big enough to have all the amenities you might need but small enough you don’t spend an hour of your day commuting! It is also very affordable and a very beautiful place to live.”

What is special about the Decatur community to you?

“I find that many people from Decatur are proud to be from our city, so there is a sense of common ground within our community, and that is something that I think is very unique to Decatur.”

What do you love most about Decatur?

“Decatur is a beautiful city. I love that our city is nestled along the Tennessee River and home to the Wheeler Wildlife Refuge. We have wonderful outdoor recreational facilities and walking/bike trails. I love all the opportunities we have to be outdoors!”

What is one thing you wish everyone knew about Decatur?

“If you haven’t made it to Decatur for the Alabama Jubilee Hot Air Balloon Classic, you should change your Memorial Day Weekend plans. Jubilee weekend is one of my favorite weekends of the entire year. If it’s Saturday morning of Memorial Day Weekend, you can find me at the balloons!”

Finish this statement: Decatur is…

“where it’s greater! — I couldn’t finish that statement any other way!”
