Anna has joined Students on Ice as the program manager for Blue Futures Pathways. Through her previous position (Manger of Learning Programs) with Centre for Ocean Ventures and Entrepreneurship, Anna brings experience in project management, program development, and youth engagement in the Sustainable Blue Economy. Anna has a specific passion for ocean education and increasing the awareness of opportunities for youth within the Ocean Sector.
After graduating from Dalhousie University with a Masters in Marine Management, Anna co-founded OCEANS-NS, a registered not-for-profit organization that seeks to enhance and strengthen oceans education in Nova Scotia. Partnering with different organizations, OCEANS-NS completed numerous projects that helped raise awareness of the importance of the ocean sector and opportunities in ocean-related careers in Nova Scotia. In 2015, OCEANS-NS received the Gulf of Maine Visionary Award for their work and dedication.
As a diver and open water swimmer, Anna spends her spare time in search of new bodies of water to explore. Swimming once from New Brunswick to PEI for GiveToLive: The Big Swim, a fundraiser for Brigadoon Village, Anna is constantly on the lookout for other awesome challenges. When Anna isn’t swimming, she can either be found in the kitchen cooking for her family and friends, or on the golf course searching for all the golfballs she keeps losing.
