Callan loves the power of lightbulb moments—the moments when we understand something that opens up new possibilities. She has learned through her diverse leadership experience that people are most fulfilled and inspired to do their best, world-changing work when organizations are people-centered and people are purpose-driven.
Originally from Texas, Callan moved to the East Coast to earn her B.A. in Religious Studies from the University of Virginia before starting her career in New York City. Even though she’s technically a “New Yorker,” she wore custom-made cowboy boots to her wedding and still says “y’all.” She holds a Master’s in the Science of Teaching from Pace University and a certificate in Executive Coaching from Georgetown University’s Institute for Transformational Leadership. She is a founding member of Tide Risers, a NationSwell Council member, and a member of the International Coaching Federation.
Callan is madly in love with New York City, the Sam Cooke Pandora station, her husband, and their daughter, whose special spark and rapid-fire lightbulb moments ground her and fill her with awe, gratitude, and a lot of laughter.
