Q&A WITH ANNA
What are you most passionate about professionally? Personally?
Professionally, I am passionate about rebuilding healthcare the way it should be.
Personally, I am passionate about proactively self-improving every single day.
What three traits define you?
Confident, intuitive, proactive
What would you do even if you didn’t get paid to do it?
What are you surprisingly good at?
I’m almost 100% positive this is due to my 16 years of dance background, but I find picking up sports and other physical activities super easy. I’ve tried nearly everything under the sun: kickboxing, waterskiing, snowboarding… you name I’ve done it.
What’s one thing you couldn’t live without?
What’s the biggest proof that you’re good at what you do?
Having solely worked in healthcare the past few years, the biggest proof I have is the feedback I receive from patients. I know I’m good at what I do each and every day if our patients are happy, healthy, and living to the fullest.
What are you complimented on most in your work?
The consistency I maintain and the energy I bring to team culture.
Who is your ideal client and why should they connect with you?
My ideal client is anyone and everyone. I believe access to healthcare is a right. Everyone wants to lead a healthier, more fulfilling life. I find strong passion and purpose in helping others reach their potential—whatever that may look like for them.
What is your grand, audacious goal? What do you wish people would know, believe, do?
Bring equitable access to healthcare to everyone. I wish people would know no human being—including clinicians—is perfect, believe in their rights as a patient, and do ask questions!
Do you have any other passions of personal goals that you would like to share?
I’d like to complete my 300RYT to become a 500RYT yoga instructor. Someday I’d like to teach internationally and study at an ashram in India for a few years.
What do you do for fun in your spare time? What are your hobbies?
Yoga, listening to podcasts, rollerblading, hanging with friends, seeing live music at small venues, read, go to pop up art galleries, travel, spend time with family
Share something unique that most people don’t know about you.
I lived in Koln, Germany when I was younger and attended a German-speaking kindergarten there. I drive a manual and have my motorcycle license.
