Anna is a proud native of Atlanta, GA. At her undergraduate institution, Georgia State University, Anna was an active member of the campus and culture where she held several leadership positions as both a member of Phi Mu Women’s Fraternity and an advocacy group geared toward combating violence and abuse of women on campus. Anna studied Sociology and Film, and ultimately received dual Bachelor of Arts degrees. After the completion of her undergraduate studies, Anna attended Boston University’s College of Communication. In Boston Anna continued to examine Film and Television studies, often scrutinizing the representation of gender in media. Anna‘s master thesis explored the construction of the 1990s female Olympian, specifically interrogating how the image of white hegemonic femininity was naturalized within 1990s Olympic coverage of ladies’ figure skating and women’s gymnastics.
Anna is an avid television fan and enjoys listening to podcasts on the go. She also loves obnoxiously cheering on Atlanta United and spoiling her cat.
Anna serves as academic advisor to freshmen and sophomore Art History, B.A. Art, and NFA Interior Design majors within the College of Fine Arts. Working in tandem with Advising First, Anna advises students as they complete Florida State University’s Liberal Arts requirements as well as the prerequisites for their specified fine arts major.
