Callilla has a BS in Accountancy from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Her background includes working with multiple audit teams to provide services to clients who represented the business insurance industry. She has managed the business development and recruiting desk for a large staffing and recruiting firm, as well as managed all financial administration and bookkeeping tasks — including invoicing, billing, and payroll — for another firm.
Her tenacity is just as important to her as outstanding teamwork. “I won’t give up on problem-solving easily, but I feel comfortable consulting my Gem team about any issues that they’re more well-versed in.”
Born in Vancouver, BC, Callilla grew up in the suburban Chicago area and currently calls Bollingbrook home. A big reader and bullet journal practitioner, she is passionate about sustainable living, diversity, and inclusion.
