About Anna: I am getting married in June of 2023. I have never had pets, but my fiance has a dog, Coco. They will both move in with me after the wedding. In my free time I enjoy reading, spending time with my parents and four siblings and with my fiance and his family, playing outdoor games like Kan Jam and volleyball, and exercising.

Favorite Sports Team: My family rarely watched sports while I was growing up, so I don’t really have one.

Why do you enjoy working at Nysus Solution?  I have been able to participate in a variety of projects for different customers concerning different aspects of our software. I like being at a small company where everyone knows everyone, and the whole team was friendly and welcoming when I joined them. They care about their employees and were happy to accommodate my class schedule so I could work part-time while finishing school.

What do you like most about working within the manufacturing industry? I am a very visual person and I like helping people, so it is nice to know that I could walk into a plant and see the system I worked on being used to improve quality or provide a customer with a better way of doing something. It has also been interesting to learn about our customers and how they make their products, and I look forward to expanding my knowledge further.
