Designing Streets for Kids

Anna works on the Streets for Kids program, creating a supplement to the Global Street Design Guide. She is an urban planner by day, mother by night, and a tireless public space observer in between. Prior to joining NACTO, Anna worked at Project for Public Spaces in New York, where she contributed to Southwest Airlines Heart of the Community Program to improve underutilized public spaces throughout the United States.

Anna has been a presenter and trainer at numerous national and international conferences, seminars and workshops, most recently in Kazakhstan, Netherlands, Russia, and South Korea. She spent two years in Norman, Oklahoma as a Fulbright scholar conducting research on minority communities and assisting the Institute for Quality Communities, a non-profit dedicated to helping people reshape their towns and cities in ways that improve social ties, environment, and economy.
