Anna B. Brawley has called West Anchorage home for over a decade, after moving to Alaska from Columbus, Ohio in 2011 for a job opportunity. She is a planner and project manager with a local consulting firm, with degrees in history, social sciences and urban planning.
Before election to the Assembly, Anna served on the NeighborWorks Alaska board of directors, as president and secretary of Turnagain Community Council, secretary of Spenard Community Council, and as an active community volunteer and advocate. Anna also previously served as chair of the Budget Advisory Commission. She lives in Turnagain with her family and two highly opinionated cats. When not working or volunteering, she enjoys gardening, creative projects, photography, biking, cross-country skiing, and neighborhood walks.
Anna is dedicated to making Anchorage work for everyone. She has led and supported multiple policy changes to state statute and local law that solved problems impacting people's lives and businesses. She likes learning how complex systems work, like cities, and how to improve them.
