Annie has worked with SAAS products her whole career, and was excited to move into the philanthropic sector in 2017 to apply her skills and experience with grantmakers. As an Implementation Specialist at Grantbook, she helps Foundations with grant management system implementations, systems training, data cleansing, and migration tasks, using a human-centred approach that considers the processes and people behind the technology.
In her free time, she is an avid salsa and bachata dancer and is a member of two latin dance teams with the Araguacu Latin Dance Company. She is also a design consultant for dance companies and solo instructors in Toronto and is always happy to teach you the basics!
Annie has a Bachelor of Commerce degree from Queen’s University where she was heavily involved in Enactus Canada, an organization that encourages students to implement community empowerment projects, and RECODE Collaborate, a student-led, national program designed to engage students through collaboration and dialogue on the future of higher education in Canada. A highlight during her time at Queen’s, was successfully obtaining a Certificate in Responsible Leadership alongside her Commerce degree, and having the opportunity to participate in social impact conferences, take social-impact themed classes, and volunteer with local non-profit community organizations.
