In 2019, she joined Wildlife Works as Global Director for Policy and External Affairs, where she advocates for social safeguards and a suitable investment environment for community centred nature conservation projects. Anna is a co-founder of the Peoples Forests Partnership where she aims to create a safe space for communities and companies to learn from each other and build equitable investment partnerships into nature restoration and conservation.
Anna is an avid sailor and holds an MSc in Agricultural Engineering from Göttingen University, Germany and started her career as field economist alongside forest conservation and rural development programs in Europe, Asia and Latin America.
