While at Goldman, she managed technology teams for the Derivatives Trading and Emerging Markets Desks, and the Global Price Verification Group. After a successful corporate career on Wall Street where she spent 16 years, Anna began exploring the startup and entrepreneurship scenes. In 2013, she started Data Gallery, which explored data visualization for business decisions, and OpenJC, a non-profit to help the local government bridge the technology gap. In 2015, she helped to grow Open Data Science to become the largest global community of data scientists in her role as a Business Development Director. In 2016, she joined Morrison Technologies to help explore tech opportunities in Cali, Colombia. It’s at Morrison Technologies, where she actively began to experiment with the use of technology for economic empowerment and digital inclusion. Anna started Summer Technology Entrepreneurship Program (STEP) for urban high school students in Jersey City and Newark, and is currently working on a Registered Apprenticeship Program through the Department of Labor for women in technology project management, targeting graduating high school students, experienced women in transition through the unemployment office, and veterans.
