Anna's career began as a journey down a rabbit hole beginning with the U.S. Navy and subsequently became a white water rafting adventure in public accounting. After floating in calm waters with her chosen career as a Professional Business and Life Coach (now retired), she saw how different life could have been if she had chosen her future years ago, rather than have allowed her future to choose her for so many years.
Diagnosed with Meniere's syndrome while in the Navy, she retired with a medical disability. Using the educational benefits awarded to her, she earned a BS in Accounting at Mississippi State University. She then obtained her CPA license and worked in the public accounting industry as a tax accountant for many years.
Waking one morning, she asked herself, "Is this all there is to life?" She then remembered a quote by Stephen Covey: "The best way you can predict your future is to create it!"
Within weeks, she applied for graduate school at the University of Texas at Dallas and began work on an MBA in Organizational Behavior and, subsequently, an MS in Management and Administrative Sciences.
She is the author of The Leroy Tree: A Memoir; Dating: A Quick Reference Guide; and Weight Loss: A Quick Reference Guide.
