Callie McClure was born and raised in St. George, as were her parents and all four grandparents. In fact, much of her entire family is from and live within a 20-mile radius of the town. Callie’s maiden name was Stephens; she attended Dorchester Academy where she met Brandon McClure, and the two dated throughout high school. She was a star basketball player integral to winning the South Carolina state championship her senior year; the school retired her basketball jersey as a result.
Interestingly, she is now the team’s coach, with some of her previous teammates serving as assistant coaches. After Dorchester Academy not reaching any championship game since she graduated years ago, Callie has coached the women’s team all the way to the state championship four times, winning it once so far. She finds coaching incredibly rewarding, and enjoys working with all the talented young women.
After high school, Callie attended the University of South Carolina, spending one semester in Scotland. Her mother visited while she was there and they toured Duffus Castle, home to Clan Murray, one of their ancestral branches. Callie earned her bachelor’s degree in business administration from USC.
After graduating from college, Callie worked with her father in real estate until she married Brandon and moved to Olympia, Washington to live with him at the Army base where they spent their first three and a half years together. When they moved back, Callie was pregnant with their first daughter.
Callie and Brandon began working together in 2015, opening up and now running the St. George location of McClure & Associates. Callie has her life, health and accident insurance license, but what she most enjoys is setting up appointments for father-in-law, Robbie McClure, and Brandon and running the St. George office. She focuses mainly on helping people with their retirement income, while Brandon focuses mainly on life, health and Medicare insurance.
In addition to coaching basketball and spending time with her husband and daughters, in her free time Callie started playing tennis last year. Working with her family is a pleasure, and their short commute from their home in Grover as well as flexibility in hours makes raising their daughters, Calder and Sullivan, much easier. Although she feels she “knows everyone” in St. George, the area is growing, and Callie loves getting to know people and helping them in significant ways.
