Sam Giannangeli is Ellevate Network's People Operations Lead, responsible for all things HR, hiring, and culture.
Before joining the Ellevate team, Sam was an analyst for the United States government. There, she put her degree in history and international affairs to use by researching, writing, and presenting studies to military members and senior government officials.
Sam now resides in Virginia with her husband and their cats. When she's not in the office, aka her living room, you can find her buried in a book, experimenting in the kitchen, and painting with far more enthusiasm than skill.
Sam's female role model: Sally Ride
Sam's favorite Ellevate memory: I work remotely, so my Ellevate experience is a little different than most. I visit the team in NYC pretty frequently, but one time I spent the week sleeping on a coworker's futon instead of booking a hotel. It was really fun to experience the week as a "local", and a great reminder that we're one big feminist family.
Sam's dream vacation: All of them! I am fortunate to be able to travel often, and I love learning more about the world around me. Next trips: Sydney, Queenstown, Cape Town, Tokyo, Petropavlovsk.
Sam's favorite hobby: Brewing! I love experimenting with different styles and brewing techniques.
Sam's favorite author: Margaret Atwood
