Prior to starting AK & Co. in 2017 Anna spent three years helping grow a startup social media app, Yik Yak, that was later acquired and left her searching for a new start-up to dive into. Anna has always had a passion for interior design, whether it was designing the company's culture and creative office environment or spearheading an office renovation, and she soon realized this was the perfect opportunity to pursue her dreams of starting her own interior design company.
Before Yik Yak, Anna spent two years with a New York based tech hedge fund, Coatue Management. There she helped design the office and build the people operations infrastructure when they established a presence in Silicon Valley.
Anna graduated from North Carolina State University and swam for the Wolfpack’s Division 1 Swimming Team. After graduation, Anna spent two years training for the 2012 summer Olympic Trials.
Anna’s path to interior design is not typical, but when you have a passion and talent for something, she believes it finds you. Anna is a native of Williamsburg, Virginia and journeyed through Fort Worth and San Francisco before settling in Atlanta with her husband. They also welcomed a new member to their family recently. Their daughter Sloane was born in December 2018. Anna's personal style is rooted in her colonial heritage and has evolved to include elements from her time out west. The combination of timeless and fresh, simple and interesting, and old and new can be seen throughout her projects.
