About

Her story is, like everything in her life, quite zany.

Despite being rejected from both her top-choice colleges, she got an 880 on her SATs and spent a lot of time sleeping during classes in high school, Anna managed to graduate with a Bachelor in Communications from Pace University, NY, and a Masters in the Art of Teaching from Sacred Heart University, CT.

She is a former adjunct professor of Public Speaking at Pace University. With roots in stand-up comedy, Anna has performed at most of Manhattan’s most prestigious comedy clubs including Caroline’s on Broadway, Gotham Comedy Club, and Stand Up NY. (Take that SATs!)

In 2010 she discovered radio via Craigslist and worked terrible hours and horrible shifts to eventually wind up with her own show!

Her biggest passion, besides naps and eating pizza, is doing all she can to help raise awareness and funds for charities that are close to her heart. She is most proud of the hundreds of thousands dollars she helped raise to support charities such as Make-A-Wish, The American Cancer Society, and many more. She recently was a keynote speaker for LiveGirl, which empowers young women to learn their voice and gain confidence. Anna was proud to have shared the stage with Olympic Gold Medalist Aly Raisman this past year as they discussed the impact of sexual and domestic abuse for The Center for Family Justice.  

Anna spends a great deal of time Googling things like “Why can’t I cook?” or “How do you operate on no sleep when you have an infant?” In her spare time, you can find her on a dance floor leading a Zumba class while her ten-year-old, Hayden, looks on horrified. Her youngest daughter, Dakota, just turned one and has decided that sleep is overrated.  

Anna counts herself lucky to be married to her college sweetheart who (thankfully) is an organized, neat freak so that Anna can have some kind of order in her life. Together they are balancing work and family in a state of sleep deprived lunacy.
