I’m Anna. Nice to meet you.
Born in a January blizzard and raised in New Jersey, I moved to the Lehigh Valley, PA, area with my family after graduating high school and lived there throughout undergraduate and graduate school. I’m now back in New Jersey with my boyfriend of 3 years, Dave, and two cats, Reggie and Squeaker.
What I do.
I’m out-and-about often, but when I do have downtime you’ll find me cooking or baking (check out my food blog launched in 2016, From Anna’s Kitchen), knitting or crocheting, listening to music, going to concerts and local events, spending time with family and friends, or shopping.
I never let the fear of not knowing how to do something stop me from experimenting and being creative. I enjoyed art and music classes throughout grade school, and picked up web design as a hobby in 2001 when I taught myself HTML and CSS. Through much trial-and-error, I created my first website at 12-years-old (as you can imagine, it was very different compared to this one you’re visiting now… ;), and not long after that started using graphic design tools like Adobe Photoshop to create graphics to spruce up my site.
During high school and college, I created MySpace profiles (really!) and simple websites for friends, family, and clients I met online before taking these skills into my professional career in marketing after college.
In May 2011, I graduated with honors from Rider University with a Bachelors of Science in Business Administration and completed minor studies in Spanish. I developed an interest in marketing and technology during this time, completing a honors thesis about the evolution of mobile marketing, internships, and other assignments (read a preview of some of them here.) After taking some time off to start my career in marketing, I re-enrolled at Rider to pursue an MBA with a concentration in International Business. I graduated from this program in May 2016.
My recent roles have focused on marketing and technology. At previous companies, I was a key member of corporate website re-design projects, social media strategy creation and day-to-day social account management, CRM & other cloud software implementation teams, and corporate & product line rebranding projects.
