About me: Anne was born and raised in New York City and studied Political Science and Classics at the University of Chicago. She spent the first three years of her career in New York City in risk and strategy consulting where she worked on numerous engagements with major global financial institutions. In 2018, Anne relocated from New York City to her firm’s office in Sydney, Australia, where she worked until starting her MBA.

She decided to pursue an MBA at LBS because of the programme’s unparalleled global reach, the world-class academics and flexible curriculum, and the diverse student and alumni community. She is seeking to leverage her experience in financial services consulting to pivot into consumer banking, with a particular interest in fintech. In addition to being a student ambassador, she holds the role of Strategy Manager on the Executive Committee of the Women in Business Club and is involved in the Impact Consulting Club and Australia and New Zealand Club. In her free time, Anne enjoys running a gluten-free baking blog, exploring London, and Pilates.
