Anna is a proud native of Atlanta, GA. At her undergraduate institution, Georgia State University, Anna was an active member of the local campus and culture where she held several leadership positions as both a member of Phi Mu Women’s Fraternity and an advocacy group geared toward combating violence and abuse of women on campus. Anna studied Sociology and Film, and ultimately received dual Bachelor of Arts degrees. After the completion of her undergraduate studies, Anna attended Boston University’s College of Communication. In Boston Anna continued to examine Film and Television studies, often scrutinizing the representation of gender in media. Anna’s masters thesis explored the construction of the 1990s female Olympian, specifically interrogating how the image of white hegemonic femininity was naturalized within 1990s Olympic coverage of ladies’ figure skating and women’s gymnastics.
Anna’s varied interests in film, media, and sociology equip her with a distinct perspective and make her a unique and ideal candidate for working with students as they reach their personal and scholastic goals. When working with students Anna values an empathy-based approach; she strives to form productive relationships rooted in mutual respect and accountability.
Anna is an avid television fan and enjoys listening to podcasts on the go. She also loves obnoxiously cheering on Atlanta United and spoiling her cat.
