Born in Estonia, a small country in the Baltic region of Europe, Anna moved to the United States when she was 11 years old. Now she considers Ft. Lauderdale her home and is bilingual, being able to speak both Russian and English proficiently.
Attending McFatter Technical High School, Anna graduated with a Certification in Commercial Photography, a focus that allowed her to better develop both her computer skills and creativity. Anna later applied this education, knowledge and experience to the printing industry, where she spent the next five years learning the intricacies of the business. While working there, Anna learned more about design and layouts, which allowed her to apply her creativity and customer service skills while working directly with the clientele.
With this valuable knowledge in tow, Anna joined Outer Reef Yachts as an in-house graphic designer, creating all the company's print and digital marketing material. She conceives and produces print materials, including brochures, posters, e-mail blasts, signage, and magazine ads. She is skilled with software and is computer-savvy, with most of her skills and knowledge self-taught.
