Anna is an engineer turned marketer, former student athlete, and bacon enthusiast. Though originally from Iowa, she first moved to Atlanta in 2013 and hasn't looked back (though she did do a brief stint in Minneapolis, she knew it was a short detour). She started her career as a sales engineer selling manufacturing controls. When some side projects introduced her to marketing strategy, she decided to pivot disciplines and went on to attend Goizueta Business School at Emory University. Anna has since gone on to work on brands like Nature Valley, Gushers, Mott's, YQ by Yoplait, smartwater, and OLLY leading brand strategy and doing anything from launching partnerships with names like Gal Gadot to the less sexy things like leading cost savings projects. She now leads brand marketing for Red Bull’s Deep South Region where she has the opportunity to develop local strategies and events. She has a passion for understanding consumer needs and believes the best part of marketing is figuring out how a brand can deliver on those needs. Anna is always down for an adventure of any kind whether it's hiking in North Georgia or partying at Carnival in Trinidad. In her free time she loves to play soccer, try new restaurants, and drive around in her Jeep with her pup Gigi.
