Charlie Steinhice, a lifelong resident of Chattanooga, Tenn., and member of Mensa for more than 20 years, joined the Mensa Foundation Board of Trustees in 2016. Charlie is a Business Analytics Manager of Internal Strategic Analytics & Reporting at BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee.
Outside of work, Charlie is a certified Proctor and a Scholarship Chair for Chattanooga Mensa. He also is an active volunteer for the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network, for whom he is the current Chair for the Chattanooga affiliate and a longtime volunteer advocate. He also has served as chairman of the Chattanooga Neighborhood Network and on the Chattanooga Public Library’s board of directors.
A former reference librarian, Charlie has a master’s in library and information science from the University of Tennessee and a graduate certificate in biomedical informatics from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, where he also earned a bachelor’s in history. For 17 years he served as coach of UTC’s Quizbowl team, a logical role for a former Jeopardy! contestant who is “interested in everything.” (For the record, he lost on Jeopardy! but won redemption as a successful two-time “phone-a-friend” on Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?)
