At the helm of Lippincott’s marketing team, Anna drives the firm’s global brand, thought leadership and public relations agenda.
Having grown up in Sydney, Australia, her journey to New York included a three-year stop over in London. She spends her days working side-by-side with Lippincott's global teams, packaging up industry-leading work and ideas and seeding it out into the world.
- What is a little-known fact about Lippincott?
I love reading our Sense Magazines from the 50s and 60s. So much of what our founders talked about is still being debated today: the value of good design, brand authenticity and effective creativity. They were true pioneers and the reason why Lippincott's earliest work is still so relevant today.
- What’s your favorite thing about the place you call home?
I call a lot of places home, but Sydney will always have my heart. You can’t compete with the city that boasts all of your family and closest friends ... and the best coffee and beaches in the world.
The people, the culture, the work — you can’t help but be inspired every day at Lippincott.
- Do you have a favorite quote?
“That’s how we all start. We think out loud and hope the right people are listening.” — Tom Wolfe
- Have you made any significant u-turns, left turns or corkscrews in life?
After graduating university, I decided to move from sciences into a creative field. At the time it felt like a difficult move, but in hindsight was definitely the right one for me. And while my degree was unconventional, it ingrained in me a curiosity about people that has served me well.
- Who has influenced you most in your career? How?
I’ve always had strong female leaders to look up to, and Lippincott is no exception. They taught me to seize opportunities, to be resourceful and to value balance.
