Schedule Anna to speak to your group or event

Over the last decade, Anna developed a deep passion for using social media to truly connect with others. Along the way she’s made friends, and a career out of it!

Anna is the Social Media Coordinator for (in)courage by DaySpring, and is able to speak to the power of story told digitally. As a former MOPS International group co-coordinator and a successful parenting blogger, she speaks to women who are looking to use the internet to connect with and encourage others. Before coming to (in)courage Anna served as Social Media & Webinar Manager at Vibrant Faith, and with a degree in Youth Ministry, Anna views social media through the lens of a church leader.

With her extensive experience and ability to speak on many topics, Anna has cultivated her skills, coached numerous congregations and hundreds of individuals in social media best practices, and encouraged countless women with her words.
