Hi, I'm Anna

I've been designing and building software for over 14 years with a strong focus on an intuitive and seamless user experience. I'm creative, adaptive, and love to learn to overcome obstacles and achieve my goals.

Most recently I worked at Edsby, creating software for K-12 education aimed at students, parents, teachers, and administrators, seeking to unify the learning management and remote learning experience across all four stakeholders. Over my tenure at Edsby, I worked from the initial product idea to its current iteration with over 215 million users worldwide and winning more than 70 awards. I was responsible for the design and front-end developement of the product as well as all public-facing materials including the website, marketing materials, case studies, and promotional video content.
