When Anna discovered there was a group for inquisitive, creative, geeky gals just like her, she just knew she had to be a part of it. Currently working in fundraising for Ryerson University, Anna is Girl Geeks Toronto’s Lead Organizer. Before joining Ryerson, she was Community & Marketing Manager for gdR, a tech recruiting agency in Toronto, where she watched the rapid growth of the local tech ecosystem through gdR’s work with some of Canada’s hottest mid-sized software companies and startups. One of the first writers to launch BlogTO Tech’s Get To Know A Startup series, for several years she helped acquaint the less-technical citizens of Toronto with the incredible tech startup scene flourishing right under their noses. Other things that make Anna geek-out: indie coffee shops, cooking for people she loves, planning trips to far-off, foreign places, and listening to soul and jazz records on a lazy Sunday afternoon.
