Keara Cleary

Communications Specialist

The Early Years: Note to Self

Keara is quick to catch on. Raised in Annapolis since age 2, she learned her first valuable life lesson in first grade - and it stuck. "My discipline card was flipped from green (good) to yellow (bad) for passing notes," she explains. "That's when I learned how not to get caught." She never got in trouble at school again.

Her quick reflexes and stealthy athleticism also paid off playing a little lacrosse and soccer year-round. While in high school at St. Mary's, she played volleyball. She also "did a lot of theater - always behind the scenes." Chop, chop, and Keara was off to East Carolina University, where she continued to play soccer, softball, and party- all recreationally. She also earned a greenbelt in Isshinryu karate (watch your step!) - all while graduating in three years with a BS in Communications.

What We Know About Keara: Behind the Talent

Keara's original plan was to work in video production, and she worked as summer intern in the Talent Casting and Voice Over department at Discovery Communications. "It was an amazing opportunity, but after experiencing the corporate world of TV and video production, I realized that it wasn't for me," she says. "Although I enjoy volunteering on smaller local films in my free time." Frankly, we find the fact that Keara has any free time amazing. While working with EBS full-time, she also works part-time as a licensed realtor.

Fun Facts

Bright Lights. I have a credit on IMDB, the film site. Probably the smallest profiles on that site, but it still counts.

Dive Deep. I have my scuba certification and try to go diving at least once a year. My bucket list includes diving with sharks, but finding a dive buddy to go with me isn't easy!

"Spare" Time. I took a bowling class in college. I'm pretty sure I only passed because the teacher felt bad, so please don't ask me to join your bowling league.

Google It. Google my name. I'm either the most famous Keara Cleary or the only one.

Tammy Galusha

Client Manager

The Early Years: Truly German at Heart

Born and raised in a small town in the Black Forest region of Germany, Tammy was 19 years old before moving to the United States. She later graduated from Towson University, and now lives in Baltimore with her husband, their three kids, and the family's German Shepherd, Mauser. 

What we know about Tammy: Loving the Great Outdoors

Tammy and her family love any activities they can do outside. We've seen them go on camping and hiking trips, and on the weekends Tammy loves going for motorcycle rides with her husband. They're also frequent boaters, and whenever the weather is nice, they'll be out fishing on the Chesapeake Bay.

Fun Facts

Creative cooking: I love experimenting in the kitchen. I can't follow a recipe to save my life because I always have to put my own spin on everything.

Glue sticks rule the world! I'm super crafty and obsessed with DIY projects. Pinterest is my best friend, but also my worst enemy.

"Prost!" I would do just about anything for a German beer, sausage, and soft pretzel.

Khris Wilson

Compliance Specialist

Early Years:

Khris was born in sunny Manila, Philippines and moved to Baltimore with her family in the early 90s. She attended The Catholic High School of Baltimore and earned her Business degree from the University of Maryland, College Park.

What we know about Khris:

Talk techy to me.

Growing up as a kid, back when Google wasn't a household name yet and dial-up connections were both deafening and slow, Khris embraced the digital media world and began creating her own personal websites and blogs for fun at age 12. Though she has no formal technical education, she carries the same enthusiasm for technology to her role at EBS.

Fun Facts

I taught myself English by listening to books on tape. I may not speak Tagalog anymore but I understand my parents when they talk about me to relatives.

Unique, just like 70 million other people. A Myers-Briggs certified INFJ, I am among only 1% of the world's population.

I have three dogs. Wicket the shih-poo, Puddles the cavapoo, and a golden doodle Sperry.

I met my husband in a bar while dressed as Lara Croft. His female friend agreed to pose as his sister. The truth was revealed on our first date

Samantha Flanagan

Client Manager

Early Years: Family First

As the oldest of three siblings and Godmother to one of her nephews, family is very important to Samantha. After graduating from Mercy High School in Baltimore, Maryland, she chose to stay near her family in the city. Rather than going away for college, she attended Stevenson University for both her undergraduate and graduate degrees.  

What we know about Samantha: Mamma Mia!

Samantha's family is mostly Italian (even though she looks Irish). Her family celebrates many Italian traditions, and on Thanksgiving they cook turkey AND homemade ravioli and meatballs! But despite all the delicious, home-cooked food, Samantha could easily live off Goldfish and cereal for the rest of her life. It's all we ever see her eat...

Fun Facts

Aye aye, Captain! During high school, I was captain of the varsity soccer team.

Turn up the volume: Rather than watching movies or TV, I prefer to throw on headphones and listen to some good music. 

Enjoying the Great Outdoors: Since I love being outside, a friend and I traveled to Aspen, Colorado and hiked the Conundrum Springs. Unfortunately, we didn't realize it was an expert level hike, and it took us two days to complete!
