Anna completed her final year with the University of Alberta Pandas soccer team in the 2016 - 17 season as a Canada West All-star and Canada West Student-Athlete of the year. Across her time with the team, the Pandas earned a CWUAA Prairie League Champs (2014), CWUAA Conference Champs (2013), CWUAA Conference Silver (2011) as well as a CIS Bronze medal (2013) and 5th place finish (2011).

Anna’s CIS leadership qualities are readily evidenced across her team selection as a captain in her third, forth and fifth years with the Pandas - an accomplishment rarely achieved. Anna joined the Panda Program after training with the National Training Centre for two years, play with ASA U15 and U16 ASA (Captain U16). As a coaching figure, Anna has been involved with the University of Alberta Golden Bears and Pandas Summer Camps for the last six years, coordinating the camps in 2013 and 2014. She has also assistant coached girls under the West Raiders and Drillers club as well as coached under the ASA in elementary school camps.
