Anna was born and raised in Metro-Atlanta to South Korean immigrant parents. She graduated from The Lovett School and went on to attend the University of Massachusetts-Amherst. She later transferred to Georgia State University, where she earned a Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice. She then attended Georgia State University's College of Law, where she earned a Juris Doctorate.
While in law school, Anna was selected to participate in the nationally and internationally recognized Health Law Partnership ("HeLP") Clinic. The HeLP Clinic is a partnership between Georgia State University's College of Law, Children's a Healthcare of Atlanta, and Atlanta Legal Aid Society, serving Atlanta's low-income population. During her time with the HeLP Clinic, Anna advocated on behalf of students who were denied individualized education plans ("IEPs"). She proposed different IEPs for different students and successfully petitioned an Atlanta public school board to put in place the appropriate IEPs for each student.
Throughout her law school career, Anna also worked for an Atlanta law firm that specializes in catastrophic personal injury cases, as well as, an attorney in North Carolina, who specializes in corporate defense. She extensively worked on all aspects of plaintiff personal injury cases and assisted in a wide variety of defense work, from defending small businesses to a publicly-traded energy company.
She enjoys spending time with her dogs, cooking, woodworking, and welding. She has built theater sets, utilizing both her woodworking and welding skills, for The Lovett School and University of Massachusetts-Amherst.
