Amy Mullenix currently serves as the Senior Collaboration Manager for the National Maternal Child Health Workforce Development Center at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The Center’s hub is in the Maternal and Child Health Department.

In this role, she coordinates the activities of the Center, focusing on innovations that emerge from the interdisciplinary nature of the Center’s workforce activities. She leads collaboration efforts among multiple academic and practice partners within the Center, identifying cross-sector collaborations that lead to improved outcomes and policy changes in states. Ms. Mullenix also serves as the primary liaison with states and territories as they seek technical assistance opportunities, and serves as a coach for state and jurisdictional health transformation work.

She also works on three additional projects: the Family Planning National Training Center, the national MCH Strengthen the Evidence Center and the Improving Community Outcomes for Maternal and Child Health project in North Carolina.

Prior to her work at the Center, Ms. Mullenix worked for the March of Dimes as the state coordinator of the North Carolina Preconception Health Campaign. In that role, she also served on the leadership teams of the North Carolina Preconception Health Coalition and Every Woman Southeast.
Mullenix, a Nebraska native, previously worked as a bilingual social worker for pregnant women and families in public health departments and community health centers in North Carolina and Nebraska.
