Anna’s professional background is in marketing and communications, having worked for First Choice Holidays where she managed the delivery of package holidays from Greece to Florida. Most recently, she set up a freelance consultancy business with a colleague, developing marketing and recruitment strategies for local business, a GP surgery, and medical services.
However, the last six years have been predominantly occupied with establishing a new secondary free school on the north Devon coast. As founder and governor, Anna’s role was wide-ranging, with her marketing experience put to good use in student recruitment and planning campaigns for new premises. The school is now in its fifth year and has just moved into a wonderful new site near Clovelly.
In 2007, Anna project managed the self-build of an energy efficient home near Bude where she lives with her husband, three children and a scruffy dog. She makes the most of her rural location by trail running across the cliffs and countryside.
