As a scientist, she’s worked on projects around the world with the Red Cross/Red Crescent’s International Climate Center, NASA, The World Bank, and numerous local governments on air!


Growing up Anna was a natural when it came to science and math.  Not only was she good at it but she loved it.  That’s not typically popular for a young girl in middle school. She would like to change that.  The work she is doing as the co-Founder of Project Canary is not only important and beneficial for humanity, it’s also very cool!  Listen in to learn more about Anna’s journey from academia to entrepreneurship in the field of ESG, Climate Change and Global Warming!
