Anna Hernandez is a graduate student at the University of San Francisco, earning a Masters of Science in Organization Development. She is also an artist. Her design and business management interests came together in designing the layout for Even Bears Can Learn to Tango by Ellee Koss. Anna has combined these two passions throughout her career, managing operations and branding for consumer product companies, interior design firms, and interactive agencies.

Anna believes her interest in design and business management arrives from her conviction that leaders and artists share common qualities. They possess a deep belief in themselves that motivates them to take the necessary risks to grow. They also possess empathy for the world that allows them to see and understand it. This inspires them to give something back that is stimulating, meaningful, and lasting.
