Anna grew up with a love for foreign languages and cultures. With an eye to Bible translation, she studied Ancient Greek and linguistics at the ANU, and later studied an MDiv alongside her husband Derek.
They lived as missionaries in SE Asia for nearly 10 years, where Anna focused on raising their three kids. While there, she also led discovery Bible studies both with women in the community and at a Christian shelter for unmarried pregnant women. In 2019 Anna became a certified birth doula, and loves helping women in their pregnancy and birth journeys.
Now as a visiting Greek lecturer, Anna is excited to be delving further into that sweet space where foreign languages, the Word of God and people meet.
