Dr. Anna Parkman came to academia from the business world where she gained practical experience in finance, management, and human resources. She also developed a large network of colleagues whom she now brings into the classroom to enhance student learning and help them make connections in industry. For Parkman, teaching is about interacting with students and tapping into their curiosity, ambition, and drive which in turn, inspires her to bridge classroom learning with real-world experience. In addition to teaching, Parkman serves as Undergraduate Program Leader and Internship Advisor.
