After Year 12 Anna went on a GAP year to the UK, living and working in boarding schools. Once she returned, she completed a Bachelor of Education at Deakin University and started teaching at Melbourne Grammar School, Grimwade House and Lauriston. 

Anna has three gorgeous children - Jack 18, Maddy 15 and Bella 14. Since having the children, Anna has worked at Breast Cancer Network Australia in Corporate Development and now continues volunteering at BCNA and in the kids' schools. 

Anna says she loved her time at Lauriston and is very proud to be a current parent (both her girls are at Lauriston). She joined the OLA Committee to give back and to be part of a group of passionate Lauristonians who want to engage the wider OLA community.
