Anna Laroque

Community Engagement Manager

Anna initially joined ArtReach as an intern to assist on fundraising events, specifically the first Charity Art Auction in 2019 when artists turned surfboards into art. She instantly felt connected to the mission of ArtReach and the passion, creativity, and compassion of its team members. Soon after, her role expanded to manage ArtReach’s fundraising events/campaigns, donor management/relations, marketing and communications, and social media. She also works closely with Sarah on other admin-related tasks. Anna received a BA in Mathematics from the University of Kansas in 2008 and a Professional Certificate in Meeting and Event Planning from San Diego State University in 2017. Anna’s previous experience includes technical writing and data analysis, work in childcare facilities and summer camps, and lifelong participation in visual arts classes in all media. In her spare time, she likes to read, go hiking, FaceTime with her niece and nephew, and watch college basketball (Rock Chalk Jayhawk!).
