Anna has been with the Sustainable Business Network of Greater Philadelphia since January 2013, and couldn’t be prouder or more committed to our mission to build a just, green, and thriving economy.

Prior to becoming Executive Director, Anna served as Manager of SBN’s GSI Partners, a business-informed initiative working to maximize the triple bottom line impact of Philadelphia’s innovative nature-based stormwater management plan, Green City, Clean Waters.

Anna holds a Masters of Environmental Studies from the University of Pennsylvania, where her academic work focused on urban sustainability. She was a 2012 US Forest Service Sustainability Science Fellow, the 2013 recipient of the Dr. Frederick Scatena Award for Outstanding Research in Urban Forestry, and a 2015 Fellow of the Environmental Leadership Program.

Anna has worked and volunteered for several non-profits in Philadelphia, each committed to making this region a better place – environmentally, economically, and socially.

Anna thoroughly enjoys all things outside, going for long bike rides, gardening, and cooking.

“We are a diverse biological community interacting with each other and all aspects of our physical environment, inextricably linked in an ecological and economic system. We each have the ability to be change agents, so each have the responsibility to respect and protect our planet and all living things, and ensure equality and prosperity for all. We are resilient together.”
