New Orleans, LA
Hi, I’m Anna, and I solve problems for a living. Without pulling previous job titles into this, here’s what I do: coordinate, facilitate, repair, connect, laugh, geek out, bolster, define, strategize, travel, seek, create, suggest, hold, listen, empathize, correct, build, learn, reach, and dream. You'd never know it to look at me, but I’m an introvert, and spent years being a wallflower until I realized the power of simply paying attention. When you spend a long time watching and listening, you learn to read signs and understand the great differences – and great sameness – of the people around you. Understanding the nuances can help the right person build a great team or destroy the biggest problem. Knowing this makes it much easier to quickly create intimacy, forge bonds, and step into the limelight.
Gallup StrengthsFinder defines my top 5 strengths as individualization, empathy, maximization, deliberation, and adaptability. I have a handful of college degrees, but the most important one is my MSc in Internet Marketing. Over the last 10 years, I’ve helped people get jobs, dug into life stories to help people write new chapters, acted as the lifeline in teams that couldn’t see eye-to-eye, coordinated seemingly impossible events, and – my greatest passion – created targeted marketing campaigns from the ground up. I’m the person that folks come to when they’re short on time, looking for a second opinion, or stumped on where to begin.
My next big goal in life is to use my skillset to help create change in the world. What’s yours? Let’s talk!
