Married to a Sacramento native, Anna is a health care lawyer with over a decade of legal experience in litigation and counseling.
Anna’s guiding principle – that great schools build great communities – has led her to be deeply engaged in Sacramento’s communities. Her passion for quality education for all children has recently grown into several projects involving technical and vocational education to support children and adults in Sacramento where the public school system does not provide services.
Anna served on the City of Sacramento’s Planning and Design Commission for three years, voicing the concerns of community members and investigating projects throughout the city to ensure that every project she approved reflected the neighborhood it serves.
Anna has also served on the boards of charitable arts groups and has fundraised on behalf of numerous causes. Her passion for the arts drew her to sing and, later, serve on the Board of Directors of the Sacramento Choral Society & Orchestra. She has also chaired the fundraising committee for the inaugural Artober celebration, Sacramento’s month-long celebration of the arts in October each year. Anna served one term as the chair of the Democratic Party of Sacramento County and remains active in statewide and local Democratic Party organizations.
A strong advocate of quality public education, Anna has also volunteered as a mentor in the Sacramento City Unified School District, providing support and understanding to sixth grade girls who live in less fortunate circumstances. Anna and her husband, Kai, have two inquisitive and engaging children, ages 6 and 3, with a third child on the way.
