Anna first became interested in global health in medical school, building on this with placements in South Africa and Tanzania. In 2015, she took time out of medicine to volunteer as a Mental Health Coordinator for King's Global Health Partnerships in Sierra Leone for a year, then remained in country working as a Mental Health and Psychosocial Support (MHPSS) consultant for USAID and WHO.
