 While at California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo, Anna was a member of Structural Engineering Students for Haiti (SESH), including a week volunteering in country. She soon started an internship with the structural engineering non-profit Build Change in the summer 2010 in Port-Au-Prince.  Graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Architectural Engineering (ARCE) from Cal Poly, she worked with Miyamoto International Inc., Haiti for four years. She focused on seismic risk assessments, structural analysis/design, construction supervision and training for retrofits, repairs and new construction projects. In 2015, Anna attended the USC College of Architecture Heritage Conservation Summer Program due to her passion for preservation. Shortly after, Anna decided to return to the United States and started at Nous in May of 2017, loving every minute of it!
