Learn About Anna
Anna Haefele is the creative half of the founding team, but she is not without operational and technical chops. Before learning web development and entering the world of professional visual design, Anna worked in Human Resources for a Civil Engineering firm. During this time, she earned her aPHR credential and learned what it takes to sensibly and professionally handle areas like staffing, project management, software implementation, team training, CRM, and performance management.
Eventually, though, she fell in love with her side-hustle and began to focus her attention on building a career as a designer and developer. Since then, she's expanded her skills to include an in-depth knowledge of Wordpress development, Squarespace implementation, Ruby, HTML, CSS, and Adobe Creative Suite.
She speaks intermediate-level Spanish (always improving!), and is an avid traveler.
