Anna joined the WUSC Committee in January 2015. In her role as Treasurer, she knits together her professional experiences gained at KPMG of budgeting, forecasting, preparation and presentation of annual financial reports and general financial management with a community lens applied. Anna is not a soccer player but is definitely learning all the rules from her partner and WUSC TD, Luke Marrone, and quickly becoming an avid fan herself.
Outside of work and WUSC, Anna is passionate about personal financial health and is the co-founder of a not-for-profit initiative within KPMG that aims to promote financial freedom as a pillar of one's overall wellbeing. She believes that financial literacy is a key life-skill that is not widely taught but should be free for all.
