Ankita Callahan

Resource Management Analyst


I believe that focusing on those that do the work to create impact is equally as important as the impact they create. I am passionate about designing people-related practices with intentionality—taking the time to understand individual differences and crafting environments that allow those individuals to come together as successful teams.
