An experienced marketing and communications professional, Anna has worked for some of Hamilton’s biggest organisations across a broad range of industries including technology, defence & security, information technology security, agriculture, and higher education in career which has spanned over 17 years.
Having also spent five years in the UK, Anna brings a wealth of international knowledge to complement her local nous to the HGB family, and is passionate about collaboration, connection and creating unique experiences for clients.
Away from the office, Anna trades her marketing and communications hat for a yoga mat as a student and as a teacher.
That same passion for creating unique experiences helps guide her students to find their version of the yoga practice; be it a challenging pose, a flow sequence, or a deeply connecting restorative practice.
How did you come to join the HGB team? I started as a contractor in October 2020…the rest is recent history.
You’ve got a lot of skills, what is something not many people know about you? I’m a qualified yoga teacher – teaching vinyasa and yin yoga. I’ve been teaching for seven years and am currently further advancing my training. I’m also an aerialist.
What are you known for in the office? Charging around the office in high heels ensuring things keep moving.
Let’s go back a few years… what was your favourite subject at school? Advanced PE.
What is one thing you couldn’t live without? Coffee and kombucha (not mixed together, just to be clear). Oh, and Pink Gin!
You’re going on a teddy bears picnic, where are you going to? The beach.
Would you rather: be attacked by a grizzly bear, or a shark? Grizzly bear – at least I’d have a chance of running away or using my aerial skills, there’s no chance I’m outswimming a shark!
If you were a wizard, what would your patronus be? A tiger – brave, competitive, unpredictable, and confident.
Last but not least, if you could choose one ice cream flavour to eat for the rest of your life what would it be? It’s a toss-up between lime and mango but I think I’d have to say mango – or most things from Duck Island!
