Assistant Director of Residential Living
Anna was born and raised in Oaxaca which is a city in the mountains of southern Mexico. It is also the same place Nacho Libre was filmed and Coco was inspired! Anna moved to Mississippi College in 2017 where she got her undergrad in nursing. She graduated in 2021, and worked at Batson’s Children’s Hospital in the PICU for a short time before accepting a position in Residence Life starting as an Area Coordinator. During college, Anna was an RA and a Lead RA. Anna loves pandas with her whole soul, could live off of coffee alone, and her favorite word is “plethora” for an abundance of reasons. If your favorite thing is to laugh, then you’ll be friends with her forever. She is super pumped to be a part of the MC’s community and invest in college students!
