Anna Pasquale

Anna truly appreciates the opportunity to have an impact on people. After some soul searching (and the Career Identity Program for Professionals!!!) she left her successful career with a prominent firm in the Financial Industry to support others in their own career journey. Anna is very grounded and direct with a great sense of humour to boot. Her philosophy on life is “Live, Love and Laugh”. Whenever the opportunity arises, she can be found indulging in her other passion – long road trips on the Harley with her husband.
