Anna grew up on a caravan park on the northeast coast of England, she is one of 5 Sisters, 3 of which had physical and learning disabilities. As a child, she spent most of her childhood fighting prejudice and finally went into the care system for a short time before braving the world alone at the tender age of 16. The good news is Anna was lucky enough to have found and understood her WHY from a young age. Her early life experience helped her develop a strong passion for equality and a vision for change. She worked optimistically and focussed on putting herself through college, university and a masters degree.
After working on various community development projects in Europe, Africa and Asia the idea to set up a company with a clear vision for social and environmental change was born with the aim of paying forward a percentage of revenue generated from mutual business partnerships.
Now with over 15 years experience working developing fundraising & marketing strategy for leading charities, government and the private sector she is an old hand when it comes to showing the big fish how to give back.
