About me: Anna is from Connecticut in the US and graduated from Vanderbilt University with a major in Human & Organisational Development and a minor in Spanish. She spent five years living in New York City prior to starting at LBS. Anna’s career began at NBCUniversal in the page programme – a one-year rotational learning and development programme for early career opportunities in media. In this role, she served as an ambassador for the company working events, giving tours of NBC Studios at 30 Rock, ushering audience services for shows and rotating through assignments at E! News, ad sales and cable entertainment PR.

In 2019, she joined ABC News (Disney) in the talent department, supporting the head executive of the department with the recruitment and development strategy for on- and off-air talent at the network. During the pandemic, she took on stretch assignments at ABC News with the medical unit, President’s Office, and was a point of contact for all talent.

Anna loves exploring London with her classmates, from museums and markets to craft beer crawls and new restaurants. In her spare time, she enjoys West End shows, food and beverage tastings, running and Soho House events in London.

Three topics I can be approached about: Media; non-traditional backgrounds; Women in Business Club.
