Sam Giannangeli

Operations Lead

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: I'd like to take a week or two to drive around Iceland. I spent a few days there in 2014, and didn't get to take nearly enough time exploring the glaciers, hot springs, and black sand beaches. I travel as often as I can. Next destinations: Fort Collins, Sydney, and Queenstown.

Sam's favorite hobby: Brewing! I love experimenting with different styles and brewing techniques.

Sam's favorite author: Margaret Atwood
