Anna Higgins has an old soul and loads of energy. She was born and raised on the wet side of the state, spending most of her childhood in Corvallis. Transplanting here to our beloved Bend in 2003, Anna and her husband have established roots with their two young children and are here to stay. Anna brings to our board her entrepreneurial spirit and strong understanding of the non-profit sector, the K-12 system and the importance of bringing the two together on behalf of children and families. She is a big picture-first, down to the dirty details-second kind of gal. Anna lives to connect the dots and is currently dot connecting as the Director of Better Together Central Oregon—a regional, cross-sector partnership working collectively to improve children and youth success from before birth to career. Anna is a sister, a friend, a daughter, a mother, a wife, an educator, a change agent and someone who loves a cup of earl grey with a splash of milk each morning. She has dedicated her personal and professional life to importance of relationships, empowerment and resilience. She believes that everyone has the right to feel whole, worthy and capable.
