LIKES:
Arizona Robbins; Cuban food; dancing in her underwear

DISLIKES:
Not having enough money to pay her rent; getting criticized for not washing her hands after using the bathroom

NOTABLE RELATIONSHIPS:
Met George after treating him for a dislocated shoulder. The pair started dating and Callie fell for George in a big way—the two married! Ultimately, however, they divorced. Callie next sought refuge in the arms of Mark Sloan and then, finally, Dr. Arizona Robbins. Callie walked out on Arizona after she learned that she cheated on her.

FAMILY:
In recent months, Callie has become closer to her father – however, her relationship with her mother remains strained – mainly due to Callie's relationship with Arizona. The survivor of a very serious car accident, Callie recently gave birth to a beautiful baby girl named Sofia.

OTHER:
Callie is the sort of woman who has had to stand on her own two feet most of her life. She's a passionate, hot-blooded young woman who isn't afraid to ruffle feathers in the typically male dominated hospital environment. Most recently, Callie had to make the choice to amputate Arizona’s leg in order to save her life. Even though she couldn’t make the conference, Callie gave a TED Talk about cartilage over a web broadcast.
