A native of North Carolina, Callie moved to Charlotte in 2001, after graduating from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Here, she began her career as a registered nurse in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), where she fell in love with finding ways to improve care for our most fragile patients — our children.
From her first days as a nurse to now, Callie’s calling is to serve the children and families of our community who are in need of health care. She believes you shouldn’t have to travel for high-quality pediatric health care. That’s why it’s become her professional mission to build upon the nationally recognized pediatric health care provided right in our backyard at Atrium Health Levine Children’s and ensure kids can get the very best care here in Charlotte.
Callie has held various leadership roles across Atrium Health Levine Children’s, including educator, nurse manager, assistant vice president, and facility executive for Levine Children’s Hospital and Jeff Gordon Children’s Center. In 2021, Callie expanded her passion for pediatric health care and was named senior vice president for the children’s service line across the Southeast. She holds a master’s degree in nursing with an emphasis on leadership in health care systems and a national board certification for nurse executives. Callie was selected for the 2015-2016 class for Leadership Charlotte, named one of Charlotte Business Journal’s 40 under 40 in 2016 and recognized as a Charlotte Business Journal Health Care Hero in 2021. She’s active nationally through her roles with the Children’s Hospital Association, serving on several board-level committees and executive forums.
Callie is married to her high school sweetheart Andrew, and they have two children: Jackson, a freshman at the University of Alabama, and Ella Grace, a current freshman in high school.
