Anna McGovern

Afterschool Program Specialist

Originating from Western Massachusetts, Anna received her B.A. in Political Science and Chinese from the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, MA. However post-grad, she found herself falling in love working in education spent the next several years working with youth in a variety of capacities. During the school year she worked as a preschool ABA Paraprofessional, coordinated a before school YMCA program, and coaching her high school lacrosse team. In the summers Anna worked as a camp counselor for the local YMCA summer camp. In 2014, the military relocated her family to Alaska where she served for a year as an AmeriCorps VISTA with RurAL CAP. As with many Alaskan transplants, the one year plan quickly turned into multi-year as she joined RurAL CAP’s staff and moved into work focusing on statewide youth tobacco prevention initiatives.

In her free time she likes to try and tame her wild 11-month-old, be outdoors, hike, run, and read. Anna is excited to be working with the dedicated and passionate youth workers of Alaska and is excited to be apart of the Alaska Afterschool Network team!
