Callie joined DLCC in 2006 as insurance specialist handling insurance billing, processing, and troubleshooting. Having entered the medical field in 2001, Callie brought a number of years of administrative experience. Towards the end of 2011, Callie was asked to take on the role of Clinical Research Coordinator and put her nursing expertise into play.
Callie completed her undergraduate education at the College of Charleston where she earned a bachelor degree in biology. She later earned her Bachelor of Science in Nursing at the Medical University of South Carolina. During her educational experiences, Callie completed clinical rotations at several Charleston area hospitals caring for various patient populations such as veterans and laboring mothers. Since Callie was a child she dreamed of becoming a women's health provider and set her sights on becoming a midwife. Her recent work as Clinical Research Coordinator has convinced her that a career in dermatologic research is an incredibly rewarding path to continue on. Callie enjoys the opportunity to work with Dr. Schlesinger and DLCC patients to help improve medical treatments and processes through dermatologic research. With a deep desire to help each patient she meets, Callie puts her heart into all aspects of each clinical trial with the hopes of helping patients for years to come. In addition to her research commitments, she also conducts patient visits consisting of such appointment types as suture removals, therapeutic injections, and isotretinoin follow ups.
When out of the office, Callie, a Charlestonian, enjoys life in the low country. Callie can often be found out on the water either boating, crabbing, fishing or scavenging oyster beds with family and friends. Callie married her best friend, Ben Powell, in 2008 and they welcomed their son, Hayden, in 2009. Their family includes four dogs and they will soon add baby chicks to their growing family. Callie is excited to be part of the DLCC research team and hopes to continue to grow and learn more about dermatology as the world of medicine continues to evolve.
