a little bit about me…

Anna is a writer and advocate. She holds a Master’s of Science degree in Rehabilitation Psychology from UW-Madison. Anna gained experience in counseling and developed an extensive knowledge in community resources as an Employment Counselor at Employment Resources, Inc. (ERI). She also interned at several local non-profits including Chrysalis and Community Living Alliance. Her passion for disability advocacy led to her position on the Board of Directors at Disability Pride Madison. In her free time, Anna enjoys volunteering in the community and served as Co-Vice Chair on the City of Madison Commission on People with Disabilities.

She has the unique perspective of having a physical disability and is open about sharing her experiences. In fact, you cannot be around Anna for very long without wanting to know more about her. You can do just that by following Anna’s Blog “Anna Works.” In her blog, Anna invites you to join her in talking about employment, empowerment, and disability. Her posts are personal, provocative, and have the purpose of uniting people interested in improving employment outcomes for people with disabilities.
