My name is Anna and I’m a Supply Chain Manager by day (i.e., stealth Excel Ninja), research junkie by night. Based on my magazine and book collection, I would say my passions in life are: healthy eating (or at least owning books about healthy eating), cooking, working out, running (yes, it gets its own category), personal finance, saving time, a lot of chick literature, and the occasional sophisticated book that might make a fancy “Top Books” list.
I live in Minneapolis, MN with my boyfriend, Matt, and our pets. We live near a few lakes and a terrific trail system so we spend a lot of time outdoors when it isn’t freezing cold. I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in Operations Management from the University of St. Thomas and my Master of Business Administration (MBA) from the University of Minnesota – Carlson School of Management.
Now that we have the introduction aside, let me tell you why I am blogging. In addition to being a research junkie, as my boyfriend would say, I am a “sharer”. Not only do I like to research my passions, I like to share what I’ve learned and my opinion about it. I may not follow the advice 100% of the time (my willpower and I don’t always agree), but I like to try anyway.
p.s., this is me in my pre-first marathon glory (October 2011):
