Anna is a North Carolina native, originally from Winston-Salem. From a young age she always knew she wanted to work with children. During her junior year of high school her mother mentioned some of the job openings posted at the local hospital for speech-language pathologists. After reading the job descriptions, Anna knew there was no other profession for her. She completed her undergraduate degree in Communication Sciences and Disorders at UNC-Greensboro in 2011 before moving on to complete her graduate degree in Speech-Language Pathology at UNC-Chapel Hill in 2013. Prior to joining Emerge, Anna worked in both Durham and Wake County Public Schools with students ranging from kindergartner to high school in mainstream and self-contained classrooms. During this time she worked largely with, and discovered her passion for, working with children on the Autism Spectrum. One of Anna’s favorite parts about working at Emerge is the collaboration that happens across disciplines. Over the years Anna has developed a strong interest in and love for incorporating dynamic sensory information into her sessions. 2019 Anna became an affiliate clinical instructor for the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill – giving a lecture titled “Inter-Professional Collaboration and a Sensory Approach to Speech-Language Therapy.”  In her free time Anna enjoys spending time with her husband, daughter, and two dogs.  She enjoys sewing, knitting, reading, yoga, and working with her husband on renovations to their historic home.
