Anna graduated from Bournemouth University in 2004 - where she was awarded Student of the Year - with a degree in Multimedia Journalism and went on to gain her NCTJ and NCE  journalism qualifications.

She began her career in local journalism, working as a reporter for the Basingstoke Gazette in Hampshire – where she specialised in real life features.  As Lifestyle Editor for ITV.com she managed the websites for the broadcaster’s best-loved shows including Coronation Street, Emmerdale, Coleen's Real Women, and Britain's Best Dish. She was also responsible for the websites for This Morning and Loose Women, and particularly enjoyed chatting to guests in the green room - Piers Morgan even thanked her for a ‘great interview’.
