Anna is a graduate student at Loyola University Chicago earning her Master of Social Work. She joined the Jobs Council in August 2018. As a member of the Frontline Focus Team, she works closely with the program manager to promote upcoming trainings, evaluate program outcomes, and strategize ways to continue improving the Frontline Focus Training Institute. Anna strongly values human dignity and cura personalis (care for the whole person); her previous positions at both Center for Changing Lives and Inspiration Corporation allowed her to employ her values while working to reduce barriers for those experiencing unemployment, underemployment, and homelessness. Her extensive participation in the Alternative Break Immersion program at Loyola was Anna’s push to strive for a more equitable future for everyone.
