Anna French

Operations Coordinator

Anna is a mom, wife, and yogi who recently stepped back into the workforce after being a full-time mother to her four children. During those precious years, she mastered the art of multi-tasking, problem-solving and organizational skills, and held part-time positions as a production coordinator for Kiwi Magazine, a yoga teacher, and volunteer at her children’s school.

She joined WNY People Development in July 2022 to provide part time training assistance for larger events, and was promoted to Operations Coordinator in January 2023.  In this role, she coordinates financial and logistical support for clients, oversees the “Thursday Thoughts” selection and publishing process, and occasionally contributes her own features as well.

Anna graduated from Rutgers University with a degree in Communications and worked as a production manager for a marketing company before becoming a full-time mom. Originally from New Jersey, Anna and her family have lived in Wilmington, NC since 2013 where her daughters attend high school; her boys are following their passions in college.

Traveling is a must for Anna.  Getaways with her family is what she lives for, along with eating her way through all the local eateries! When Anna isn’t working or traveling, she works on her writing—stories, lessons and gained wisdom from her life experiences that she plans to share with her children one day.
