She began her career in law at the firms of Davis & Kuelthau and Godfrey & Kahn. She earned a JD from the University of Chicago and a bachelors in political science from the University of Wisconsin.

The addition of Calaway brings the Astronics board to seven directors, six of whom are independent.
