Previous Experience

Anna is a native Houstonian that enlisted in the Navy in 2004. She served as a Fire Controlman, during which time she mainly worked with the Close-In Weapons System (CIWS) and the MK 38 Machine Gun System. Prior to her current role, while based in Vietnam, she was the Director of Operations for a retail company where she oversaw production and business development in both Southeast Asia and North America. As a former small business owner, she oversaw all operational aspects of her company, including marketing, sales, quality control, social media management, accounting, project management and corporate relationship development.
