After reading a tragic story about a young girl being abused by her mother, Anna made a commitment to help those who were hurting and broken when she was just 12 years old. When Orange County Rescue Mission acquired a local teen girls shelter in 2015 called Laurel House, they acquired Anna as the grant writer with it. Now the Chief Development Officer of the Rescue Mission, she leads a dynamic team that oversees donor relations, grants, marketing and communications, volunteer engagement, events, and public relations. When Anna has received exceptionally great news in the office, you might catch her doing a little happy dance… quick enough that can be easily missed with the blink of an eye. Anna and her husband, Dave, live in Fullerton with their two children.
