Nancy Kallusch graduated from Tulane Law School with a JD and Certificate of Maritime Law in 1998 and Smith College with a BA in Women’s Studies in 1991. She moved to San Francisco with her now wife to begin her career in a boutique maritime firm, which she quickly realized was not her calling. Quickly pivoting to determine what she could do outside of private legal practice, she began working with the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco in a consulting capacity, setting up their 12th District sourcing function, establishing their catalog of boilerplate terms, and acting as a liaison between finance and their in house counsel. She was promoted to lead the new division and then was recruited to Visa 5 years later to merge their multiple contingent workforce programs in preparation for their IPO. From there, she was recruited to the then Barclays Global Investors to manage their Market Data Supplier Relationship team. When the mortgage crisis hit, she pivoted again back to contingent workforce program management at Genentech just after the Roche acquisition. 5 years later again she was recruited to Gilead Sciences to launch their first ever global contingent workforce program before making another intentional industry move, this time to tech to launch Lyft’s first generation program in San Francisco. She was recruited to Meta in 2020 and relocated to Austin, Texas where she lives with her wife, 3 children, and 2 dogs.
