Besides being an avid dancer growing up, Anna always considered herself someone who worked out “casually”. She’d go for a casual one to two-mile run and go to the gym occasionally, never fully understanding how to push herself. Then in her late twenties, Anna found her “fitfam” who helped transform her into the athlete she is today.
Fitness woke her competitive spirit and she has no desire to look back, always looking for the next challenge and more ways to improve both physically and spiritually. Anna truly believes that fitness, health, and wellness are a way of life.
Anna had the privilege to run and complete the Boston Marathon as part of Team With A Vision, a group of both sighted and visually impaired runners who raise money and awareness for the Massachusetts Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired. Anna also guides visually impaired runners in marathons and half marathons. She is an avid obstacle course racer and has run Spartan races including completing the Spartan Trifecta. Anna has been involved with Rock Steady Boxing South Shore since its inception in August 2016. She is a Certified Personal Trainer through the American College of Sports Medicine and received her coaching certification for Rock Steady Boxing. Anna is also certified in SCW Boxing and Balanced Athlete Level 1. She is currently in pursuit of her 200hr Registered Yoga Teacher certification.
Anna works in the health and human services world, working with individuals with both developmental and physical disabilities. She fully subscribes to a quote by the late, great Muhammad Ali, “Service to others is the rent you pay for your room here on earth.”
