Shawna Callaghan is the Director of Programs at Senior Resource Association, a local non-profit that serves Indian River County seniors with programs that include two Adult Day Cares, Meals on Wheels, Case Managed Services, and Information Referral. She is an innovative business strategy and operations executive, having honed her acumen in the tech industry before transitioning to non-profit sector. She studied Medical Anthropology as an undergraduate, Business Strategy and Leadership as a graduate student, and is thrilled to be able to apply her business acumen in a way that lends daily meaning and purpose.

“I was immediately attracted to the ethics and leadership at Senior Resource Association, and am proud to be a part of an organization whose mission is to bring independence and dignity to seniors.”

Shawna has extensive change management experience and is comfortable with all stages of organizational transition including start-ups, turnovers, mergers and acquisitions. With the population of seniors projected to nearly double in the next three decades she has entered a career in the Aging Network at a time when it is challenged to transform to meet the growing demand for senior services. She is dedicated to applying her expertise to assure the continued availability of services for the elderly and their caregivers well into the future.

A 4th generation native of Colorado, Shawna relocated to Florida to be near the ocean. When not at work or studying Shawna can be found hanging out with her husband and seven year old daughter at the beach or on their sailboat. If life ever affords her some personal time she spends it running, doing yoga or reading.
