As a Program Manager for Corporate Services, Ana assists corporations, corporate foundations, and their in-country CSR teams in facilitating their charitable investments throughout the Asia Pacific region.
Ana began her work with Give2Asia in 2014 as an Associate supporting a portfolio of both corporations as well as families and foundations. She worked extensively with Give2Asia’s team of local, Asia-based staff and advisors to ensure accountability and transparency of projects. In response to the Nepal 2015 Earthquake, Ana organized online giving campaigns for four Fortune 500 companies, which raised over $420,000 for medium to long-term recovery efforts. Since then, Ana has transitioned to managing a portfolio of about 30 corporate and corporate foundation funds at Give2Asia, overseeing almost 90 grants totaling over $4.2M in 2017.
Prior to joining Give2Asia, Ana spent time in West Africa working for Agritech Group Holdings International, a Sustainable Development company. Agritech focuses on renewable power generation, processing of agro-resources, research and development, biodiesel, nurseries and plantations, as well as trading of various commodities. With Agritech, she worked at field level with farmers and rural communities in Burkina Faso and Benin, providing support and implementing Agritech’s innovative ideas and technology.
A San Francisco native, Ana graduated from the University of San Francisco with a degree in Environmental Studies and minor in Cultural Anthropology.
