Hollye Gallion

Hollye Gallion, RN, MSN

Certified Pediatric Nurse Practitioner, Clinic Director

Hollye started her medical career caring for critically ill infants. It showed her she was meant to help children, so she became a pediatric nurse practitioner. While in graduate school, she did a clinical rotation at Our Kids on the recommendation of a family member who’d done the same years before. She fell in love with the philosophy of the clinic and the fact that children not only get medical care at Our Kids but also get a chance to talk about what’s happened to them with someone who cares. She has been with Our Kids ever since.

Today, Hollye conducts training at national conferences and serves as lead investigator on medical research at Our Kids.
