Senior Legal Assistant
Anna joined GLAD in the summer of 2011. She holds a bachelor’s degree in political science from Brown University, where she focused her studies on the intersection of law, politics, and the rights of minorities. During college, she gained hands-on experience within the justice system as an intern for the Honorable Jeffrey S. Brown of the NY State Supreme Court, and learned the challenges and rewards of advocacy as a volunteer with MERI, Rhode Island’s leading organization dedicated to the passage of a statewide same-sex marriage bill. She was also heavily involved with her campus’ Sexual Assault Task Force, a student group devoted to raising awareness surrounding issues of sexual violence, improving relevant university policies, and creating a safe environment for survivors. Anna is thrilled to be able to combine her interest in law and her firm commitment to LGBT equality as part of the team at GLAD. While not at work, she enjoys making guacamole, practicing guitar, and playing Ultimate Frisbee.
