Meet the Team

Nan Callahan "Nanimal"

If you see Nan, say cheese. Not because she wants to take a picture, but because it’s her favorite food group and most frequent conversation topic. As PR and Communications Manager she’s  got a keen eye for a great story and excels at coming up with creative concepts and making ideas come to life. When she’s not supporting the Sports Backers’ mission, she’s living her best active life by going for walks and runs around Bryan Park with her husband Tyler and dog Millie or taking part in the Marathon or Half Marathon Training Team to prepare for her next big race. She had such a great time as a student at VCU she went back for a graduate degree as well and is a proud resident of Ram Nation.

Any pets:  “A goldendoodle named Millie, who is basically treated like a human child.”

Song you’re embarrassed to love:  “If Beyonce sings it I’m in, and I have no shame.”

Celebrity you’d like to be best friends with:  “I’d like to be in a best friend quad with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Hoda Kotb, and Chrissy Teigen.”

Favorite way to stay active:  “I love our training teams. I wasn’t a runner before working here and seeing so many people start their journey with MTT and HMTT, and knowing how it’s changed my feelings about running is awe-inspiring. I also love yoga and barre, and walking all over RVA with my girl Millie.”
