With more than a decade of experience under her belt, Anna has done it all — from reviewing iPhone apps to interviewing C-Suite execs at leading tech and retail companies. But, after over five years in the customer experience space, Anna returned to her entertainment and lifestyle roots, ultimately landing at Static Media in February 2020. As News Editor, Anna continues to use her experience to connect with writers, encouraging their growth and developing their skills, while also working with the editorial team to shape and strengthen the publication's ever-evolving voice. Anna also serves as a contributor for Backstage, where she writes for the "How to Get Cast On" series, and as a volunteer critic for Pencilhouse, where she provides in-depth feedback and guidance across literary genres.


Anna received a bachelor's degree in Journalism from Fairfield University in Fairfield, Connecticut. She double-minored in Theatre and Peace & Justice Studies. While Anna wrote theatre and television reviews for The Mirror, Fairfield's student newspaper, she also served as co-president of the student-run literary magazine and writing club, The Cream Filling.
