As Director of Operations and Strategy, Anna is responsible for advancing strategic goals and the team’s overall day-to-day operations – including developing and implementing the systems to support CYC’s program operations, supporting strategic initiatives for specific programs, and providing ongoing opportunities for staff development.

Anna was formerly the Director of Programs with CYC’s national program, Foster Youth in Action for over 7 years.  She is thrilled to continue her charge at CYC in this new role. At the foundation of her work is her lived experience in the juvenile justice system and as a youth organizer. As a young leader, she was then given the opportunity to not only learn about the system, but to understand her own privilege within it and put her experience into a purposeful practice for change.

In her free time, Anna loves to dance, travel, cook, and spend time laughing with her friends as much as she can.
