As a young child, Anna remembers telling her grandfather she wanted to be a detective. He would indulge her love for discovery by hiding handwritten riddles on paper, one leading to another, around the yard in the summertime. Later in life, after being told girls aren’t good at science, Anna pursued a degree in physics and fell in love with the challenges of problem-solving, regardless of the subject matter. In a rather non-eventful manner, Anna next found herself at a swearing-in ceremony for the Central Intelligence Agency where she spent the next 13 years uncovering secrets and solving problems in support of U.S. national security.

During her tenure at the CIA, Anna joined her love of discovery and problem-solving with a third skill: translating technical jargon into actionable strategy. Thus, a consultant was born! Alas, after some time, Anna’s wandering ways caught up with her and she longed for new challenges. Her search led her to InterWorks, a place that welcomes her quirky experiences, encourages creativity and loves data as much as she does.
When not solving data problems, Anna might be found instilling independence into two little humans or enjoying a nice dinner out with her spouse. Anna enjoys a good DIY house project, reading about the origins of human behaviors and exploring the planet on which we all currently reside.
